I’ve been getting my house in order regarding tracking creative exchanges and other events, and I thought I’d share.

So here’s a bunch of multifandom (and even some for original works) events and exchanges by month. Not all of these events have announced for 2023, but they’ve all been active within the last 12 months so there’s good reason to expect we’ll see them again this year. They’re placed in the calendar according to the schedule they they last ran on.

Many of these events are multimedia, and I’m also including events that are specifically fic, art, podficcing, vidding, etc. and even some for commenting and blogging – something for everybody! Heck, a bunch of them even take original non-fandom works.

I placed them according to the first date the event opens for activity. In some cases that’s signups; in others it’s nominations.
