Who doesn't like pirates?
« on: November 15, 2016, 10:05:45 PM »
Forum members—and especially those based in the West Country—probably already know about the Piracity Kickstarter which, if successful, will fund a new anthology from Wizard's Tower Press, featuring fantasy and science fiction stories (with pirates, of course) by authors from Bristol and the Caribbean.

Well, because who doesn't love pirates, right (at least the kind with fancy hats, unfeasible swords and funny accents, not so much the gun-toting, ransom-seeking, people-smuggling ones), we thought we'd get in on the fun and run a world-wide virtual pirate fest, to have a laugh and to help spread the word about the project. How will this work?
  • We'll have a party (in a pub in London, in fact) this weekend, where we'll dress up as silly, flamboyant, ambiguous, rum-swigging pirates, with lots of our friends, and post photos to Twitter, FB, etc. (not forgetting the #piracity hashtag)
  • You'll have a party too, wherever you are, and post pictures and hashtags and Kickstarter links too
  • Fellow pirates around the world will join in, in real-time or whenever the fancy takes them (pirates aren't big on rules—it's more of a set of guidelines, really…)
I've also blogged about this, if you want more information. (Or if you want to come to our party in London, get in touch and I'll send you the deets. :) )

Some photos from the Friday night #Piracity virtual fest have been posted to an album on Facebook. I'll post more if anything appears from Saturday or Sunday nights. (And please let me know if you have anything to share…)
