All check-ins will occur through email. The mods will email participants to check on their progress. This is meant to lessen the stress of meeting the deadline at the last minute. I know how difficult and daunting that can be, especially if you get writer's/artist's block. This way, if you're struggling, we can help you and also provide as needed extensions much easier.
Of course, if you're having trouble before or in between check-ins we encourage everyone to email us. We'll do all we can to make sure that you continue to have fun and don't stress out, because this fest is meant to be fun for everyone.
