All polls are currently open for voting in the 2011 Rose & Bay Awards. Today is the LAST DAY for voting in all categories, except for Fiction which will be closing its primary and opening its runoff poll.
More Torn World news: "The Sky Rangers," "Clouds in the Morning," and "Cutting Time" are all still under consideration with the canon board. "Squiggles" is almost through the first-reader process, and "On the Rocks" is in revision. Currently in progress are "From Black to Bright," a story about Fala and Karavai during her time as part of Itrelir; and "The Ties We Twine," about Karavai, Tekura, and Ularki forming the core of their age-set.
One epic is currently open for sponsorship. "A Periodic Table of Elementals" is ahead of production. This is science fantasy.
