Welcome to Sutcliff Monthly, a low-key, prompt-based challenge for all kinds of fan creations based on the works by Rosemary Sutcliff!

Each prompt is open for one month (circa 30 days), with a "grace"/"amnesty" period for late submissions (TBD).
To participate, you create any kind of fanwork for any kind of Sutcliff-related canon on your choice inspired by the monthly prompt and then submit it.
To win, you participate and submit. In the Sutcliff Monthly Challenge, every challenger is a winner!

1. What kind of works can I create for?
Any and all works by Rosemary Sutcliff, from full-length novels to short stories, as well as adaptations of Sutcliff's work (films, series, radio plays, etc.) Simply indicate the canon you are writing/drawing/crafting, etc. for.

2. What can I create for the challenge?
Any kind of fanwork is eligible: fic (from classic drabbles to novel-length epics, if you will), art (simple sketches, detailed illustrations, photographed miniatures and installations, icons, mood themes and banners), craft (pies and their recipes, necklaces and other accessories), mixes (music selection or playlists to stream), et cetera.

3. How do I post my work for the challenge?
Comment to the monthly post containing the prompt you created for with either a link to your creation or the creation itself.

4. How do I indicate that my fanwork was created for Sutcliff Monthly on other platforms?
You are welcome to tag your work with "Sutcliff Monthly Challenge" on AO3 and/or make a similar statement on your post.

5. What happens when I post a fanwork for the Sutcliff Monthly Challenge?
You are, automatically, a winner. It's a win-win challenge.

6. How do I browse the works that others created for Sutcliff Monthly?
While the prompt is still open, you may look at the submission comments and discover what other participants have created. Once the monthly prompt round is closed, a masterpost will be posted to [community profile] sutcliff_space.

7. How long are the Sutcliff Monthly rounds open?
One month from the day they begin.

8. Not all prompts inspire me. Can I participate in just one round of Sutcliff Monthly?
Yes, absolutely. Anyone can drop in and do as many or as few rounds as they like.

9. How many fanworks can I submit for each round of Sutcliff Monthly?
Anyone can submit as many or as few as they wish. There are no limits.

10. I have finished my fanwork but the monthly prompt round is already closed. / I have been unexpectedly inspired by an old prompt and have created something for it. How do I share my Sutcliff love?
If the round is closed, but the masterpost is not up, you can still submit your fanwork for that round via simple comment. If the masterpost is already up, you'll have the opportunity to submit your fanwork via comment during a special "grace"/"amnesty" period. It will be a special party for unexpected & belated works!

11. Behold! I am a glorious knight/gladiatrix who has successfully participated in ALL rounds of the Sutcliff Monthly Challenge all year. How do you celebrate my might and splendour?
Ave! Those who have participated in all monthly prompt rounds (either by posting something each month or by covering the missing monthly prompts during the special "grace"/"amnesty" period) shall be declared champions of the Sutcliff Monthly Challenge et cum iustis scribantur and we shall publicly glorify their names.

12. I have more questions, how do I ask them?
Please reply to this post with your question!

See you very soon for our First Round of Sutcliff Monthly!
