Digress like a 19th Century Novelist

Black text on white background: And I Digress - A Year-Long Meander

This party is for people who like the long way around and the deep dives into minutiae, whether your ambition stretches to “I wrote a drabble, then a page of carefully-researched exposition about the history of the coffee beans sold in the shop where the drabble is set,” or to “I invented a conlang for the Tusken Raiders and I’m trying to figure out what to do with it since it got jossed by The Mandalorian, so I’m going to go full on JRR Tolkien and write a heroic novel of colonization and resistance in the sands of Tatooine.”

Any fandom or original project is welcome. Whether your digression is Victor Hugo-esque and pointed in the direction of revolution, or waxes as lyrical about sperm as Herman Melville, or takes place in the appendix where all the good bits live, or comes in the form of humorous footnotes that go on far longer than Terry Pratchett’s, come share your project with us.

The timeline for this fest is January 1 - December 31, 2022.
