Recommendations for the Many Paths to Tread Anniversary 7X7 Review Challenge

This post is for you to recommend stories for others to review for this year's Anniversary Review Challenge. If you have a favorite story that you have already read and commented on, but would like to see that others have a chance to do so, please comment at this post.

All recommended stories must be posted at the Many Paths to Tread Archive.

For each story you recommend, use this header:

Title:
URL:
Author:
Reason for recommendation:

You may recommend as many stories as you want to, and you may put multiple recs in one comment so long as you use a separate header for each, (but do keep in mind LJ's character limit). Or you may use a separate comment for each rec if you wish.

Also, you may comment on other people's recs here if you wish.

Tree and Flower Awards on Hiatus

It may have come to the attention of some of you that we have not announced the Tree and Flower Awards for Many Paths to Tread this year.

Because all the mods have been having to deal with many goings-on in their Real Lives, of various sorts, the awards will be on hiatus this year.

However, keep an eye open; we are planning on revamping them to make them easier on everyone. There will be a poll coming up soon, to help us gather ideas on how we can best do this.

2016 August Non-fiction Challenge

The August Challenge will once again have the theme "Nonfiction." You will not receive an element for this challenge; rather, we encourage all members to submit essays, research articles, and other nonfictional works related to Tolkien's legendarium. You are free to choose your own topic!

The August challenge entries may be posted in the queue at any time before the reveal, and will be revealed on Monday, August 22.

Please tag your essay "challenge: non-fiction" and "month: 2016 august". Use the following special header for your nonfiction entry: Put "Nonfiction" as the theme, and as "type" indicate whether it is an essay, research, tutorial or other type of nonfiction. Make sure to put the name of your piece and your name in the subject line (e.g. "Sindarin Verbs by Scholar Sue").



To indicate your participation, please leave a comment to this post, or you can email the mods at manypaths@lotrgfic.com. Remember: You do NOT have to wait for a prompt or element.

I hope we'll have lots of participants for our August challenge!
