Let's try this again. Some things that caught my eye:
Petridish.org, a platform for crowdfunding scientific research rather than creative projects, has a project to research hyperemesis gravidarum, a severe form or nausea during pregnancy that can lead to miscarriages and medical nightmare for the women affected. Since apparently mainstream research decided to skip it because hysteria was a good enough explanation until relatively recently, crowdfunding seems to suit that well.
On to more fun things.
Ysabetwordsmith is running her Poetry Fishbowl today - leave her prompts to the theme "modern myth" to inspire poetry.
Next weekend, August 10-12, will see the 27th EMG Sketch Fest - leave prompts, or draw sketches based on prompts; open for anyone.
Torn World's creative jam, also open to all comers, is scheduled for August 24-27. It'll run in the associated Livejournal community, where you can also find last month's instalment for a description.
And I'd like to run a Flash Fiction Fishbowl to the theme "Stories people tell", but I'm not sure when exactly yet.This entry was also posted at http://anke.dreamwidth.org/192761.html. You can comment wherever you prefer.
