I serve as a maintainer of the Crowdfunding communities on LiveJournal and on Dreamwidth.
Crowdfunding Creative Jam on crowdfunding or on Dreamwidth
A two-day event where anyone can leave prompts on the current theme, or create anything based on prompts. Some material is usually shared free and some is available for sponsorship.
Sketch Fest hosted by ellenmillion
Leave prompts for artists to sketch (in any medium) with a one-hour limit on each sketch during Sketch Fest proper. Sketches may be finished later. They are often offered for sale. Sponsors of Sketch Fest get to leave up to 15 prompts instead of the 5 that everyone else gets.
My Own Projects
I have a permanent "Feed the Bard" donation button on my Dreamwidth profile page. You can use that to support any of my projects, just make sure you tell me what the donation is for.
The Blueshift Troupers (sporadic)
This is science fiction about a team of shapeshifters who travel the galaxy solving problems. So far it has a bit of background material and a couple of poems. I'd like to find time to script the pilot episode.
The Poetry Fishbowl (monthly)
Live poetry activity where people give me prompts on a theme and I write poems based on whatever I get. Minimum of one free poem posted, and others available for sponsorship. Lots of different perks. Fishbowl Open posts have a donation button. The regular session is on the first Tuesday of each month. Sometimes there is a bonus session or a sale mid-month.
Schrodinger's Heroes (sporadic)
This project features an apocryphal television show supported by an imaginary fandom. It's science fiction about quantum physics and saving the world. The cast of characters is sexually and ethnically diverse. Content includes fiction, poetry, LOL_HEROES (LOLCATS images of characters who are cats, or have gotten changed into cats), and other goodies. I write for this project during the Poetry Fishbowl, Crowdfunding Creative Jam, bingo fests, and sundry other occasions.
The Silk Road Allies (sporadic)
Imagine if China and Italy became friends; that's the theme of this alternative history shared world. I write for it along with thesilentpoet and marina_bonomi
Nineforthenebulasheart is based on several of my Creative Jam prompts bundled by Dreamwidth user Alexconall into a feminist mythpunk science fantasy project. It's a collaborative fandom with multiple participants creating poetry, fiction, and other goodies, licensed via Creative Commons.
The Ursulan Cycle is a genderbent rendition of the Arthurian Cycle. It's an open source fandom with multiple contributors making poetry, fiction, and other stuff.
