If you are interested in writing for Avengers2000 or any one of our imprints, please be sure to read the guidelines below in their entirety before submitting your proposal.
- READ. Before submitting a proposal to write a series, be sure to sample a reasonable amount of the stories on the site. Not only will this give you an idea of the quality of the stories we host, it will also allow you to familiarize yourself with our continuity and allow you to make better decisions about your story ideas.
- PICK AN IMPRINT. Avengers2000 is unique among fanfic groups in that we offer five very different imprints, each with their own continuity.
- THE AVENGERS2000 IMPRINT is the main imprint and is based around the Avengers and related characters.
- THE MARVEL2079 IMPRINT is set in the future and is a great place to explore what the heroes of today will be like tomorrow.
- THE MARVEL-X IMPRINT was originally a universe based around the X-Men, but grew to include the entire Marvel Universe.
- THE OTHER WORLDS IMPRINT is a place to explore the alternate possibilities, the what-ifs, and the what-could-have-beens.
- THE PENDRAGONS IMPRINT is a universe based around the guardians of Avalon, and the United Kingdom, the Pendragons. Note: All Pendragons submissions should be sent to its EiC David Wheatley email@example.com.
SUBMITTING YOUR PROPOSAL
- E-MAIL ADDRESS. For obvious reasons, your e-mail address and name must be given in your proposal.
- TITLE INFORMATION. When sending your proposal in, be sure to specify for what imprint you are making your proposal, the proposed title of your work and if it will be an ongoing, mini series, or an anthology issue.
- CHARACTER LIST. In your proposal, include a list of characters you plan to use. If the characters are obviously being used by another writer, be sure to check with that writer before proceeding.
- WRITING SAMPLE. We ask that along with your proposal, you submit a sample of your writing. The sample need not be long, a paragraph or two is sufficient.
- PLOT SUMMARY. The most important part of submitting a proposal is the plot summary. Give a general outline of your ideas for the title, any status quo changes to characters, and any major continuity altering events. The EiC reserves the right to ask for a more detailed outline if he deems it necessary.
ONCE THE PROPOSAL HAS BEEN ACCEPTED
- THE CONTRACT. Once your proposal has been accepted, you will be issued a 3, 6, or 12 issue contract for an ongoing series. After the contract has expired, you must submit a new proposal in order to renew your tenure on the title.
- EXCEPTIONS. The EiC reserves the right to make changes to contracts on a case by case basis. A writer who does not produce any new material for an extended period of time may be asked to step down from the title if no other arrangement can be made.
All submissions should be sent to the EiC, Derrick Ferguson, firstname.lastname@example.org
