thank you all so much for your patience with how late we're getting this out this month - some of us have been swamped by other things recently. 😅 they're credited at the bottom as well, but a huge top line thank you to ineke, madi, and taylor for jumping in to help finish it up. 💖

if you're new, welcome to fanfic talk! it's great to have you with us. :D we're a multi-fandom forum + archive with a strong culture of support for other writers and feedback here, including a story help section, challenges, and reviewing events - so if you're a writer, you've come to the right place. :P please make sure that you post in the 'welcome to fft' topic +here to say that you've read over the rules and understand them, and if you're a harry potter fan, you can request to join a common room +here. you can reach out to any +staff member for help if you have any questions at all (we're very friendly and we like helping!), and you may also find our +faqs helpful.

enjoy your stay!

staff-apps.png.db5084e9af899ba733c03a99ebdebb0a.png

applications for all staff, community coordinator, and house newsletter editor positions will be open from april 13 - april 23. there's no post count/join date limit, and you can apply for as many positions as you like - it's all on one application. a detailed rundown on how site staffing works can be found +here, and you can find the application +here.

if you applied in february or march, you don't need to apply again unless you'd like to apply for additional positions or change your answers - we'll still consider you this month. ^_^

we're very sorry to announce that @Renacerá and @sibilant will both be stepping down from their positions as community coordinators.

thank you so much for your hard work, emily and shreya! 💖

we're opening up applications this month for our new equity and inclusion coordinator position. the person or people in this role will work with other staff members to help to move our community toward being more explicitly and intentionally inclusive. as a starting point, our goal is to create and share more antiracist content with our community, but there's also room for this role to grow in a way that's influenced by where the EIC team's experiences and interests lie. if you're interested in being an equity and inclusion coordinator, you can apply using our application above. ^_^

we've posted the results of this year's golden ink awards +here; the results of the review event will be out later this week. the hogwarts clubs are also in the process of running their own annual awards; we encourage you to stop into your common room to check it out. ^_^

camp nano is also underway; you can check out our cafe +here or join in the activities our wonderful @victoria_anne is running in one of the featured clubs +here.

you are a minute of quiet (in a loud, loud world) by @shadowycorner

Dorothea Prewett has lost all her children, except one. But she's a wild thing, and on the run. She will do what's in her power to bring her daughter home.

Arthur Weasley is in his first job as an assistant to a grumpy old detective, yet their first case is anything but what he expected it to be.

And somewhere out there, a girl with a broken heart and an empty soul decides that hell take it all, she is going to become legend.
