You *don't HAVE* to sign up in order to compete for this season, if you are eligible, you can go "week to week", but in order to be eligible for the Community Chest https://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1049645.html, you have to be signed up by the deadline for the Week 1 topic!
So make sure you get signed up today! https://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1049456.html
Or, if you know a young writer, help them get signed up today! :)
PLEASE spread the word - to young writers, and people who you know will love reading and commenting on their work!
