This one is still in the brainstorming stage, but it looks like fun....I'm definitely going to sign up and I'll probably be nominating some Roxy Music/Bryan Ferry as well as few of my other eclectic favorites.
What's this fest about?
Ask for a song and receive a story.
Jukebox is a challenge festival for fanfic writers. It is based on a theme of songs and music videos, and it uses a gift exchange structure, like Yuletide and many others. When you sign up, you will prompt several possible stories using songs for inspiration, and you will commit to writing a story for a recipient who will be assigned to you.
The goals of this fest are:
Write a story (or more, if you feel inclined)
Get a story
Share and learn about music
Read and comment on many creative interpretations of song narratives.
