January 1 - Nomination period begins
January 13 - Nomination period ends
January 16 - Sign ups start
January 31 - Sign ups close

TBD - Works revealed (once all are in)
1 Week After Reveals - Authors are revealed
Now, the reason why everything is so early despite it being a spring exchange is simply because of finals. You have the university finals in March/April and the school ones in May/June. Hopefully, this should minimize finals conflicting with this. I hope giving two full months is enough time to work on something.
Nominations will be done through a neat little form they added on AO3, once I figure out how to get it to work. How many fandoms and how many characters per fandom do you think is fair on the form?
An AO3 account will be required for this exchange. If you need an invite please drop a line here or message me with your e-mail address.
Sharing the Fandoms
Is there a magical girl fandom you like and want more people to know about? Do you want to learn about a new one? Then please post about why your magical girl fandom is so awesome and why we should check it out. The earlier you do the more time others have to check it out and decide if they like it too! I will be trying to post at least once a week with something new to check out, but there is no guaranteeing I will cover your fandom.
