Please suggest themes you'd like to see covered here! Cut and paste the following into a comment:

ETA: please put your theme in the subject of your comment!

Theme:
Are you prepared to run it? Yes/No
Suggested books, if you have them already:


What does it mean to run the theme?

1. At least one month in advance, you'll let everyone know about the theme and your suggested reading for it. You need to suggest at least 3 works of fiction.
2. On the first of the month, you will post a welcome/introduction/kickoff for the theme.
3. Throughout the month, you'll take an active part in discussion of the theme.

You do not have to be an expert on the theme to run it. You just need to have an interest in it.

As mod/creator of this comm, I'm going to start off with some guidelines on what suggested reading should be provided for each theme.

1. You need to provide at least three works of fiction.
2. If possible, you should make one of these be freely available as an etext (thanks, [personal profile] katemonkey)
3. They don't have to be good.
4. They should, however, show different perspectives on the theme.
5. You may additionally offer non-fiction or other media suggestions (eg film, TV), especially for themes that are not well known, to provide additional background.

I'm happy to discuss/adjust/modify/throw away the above guidelines, if people have any other ideas.
