Format: Each person interesting in writing for this event will submit their own 20/0 vanity packet distribution to me and in turn will receive the distribution that someone else submitted. Writers will not be informed of the creator of their distribution and are asked to refrain from discussing the distribution they receive until after the set is clear. I want this to be as similar to Secret Santa as possible. Distributions may be academic, trash or both in nature. I do ask that you refrain from being overly specific when creating your distribution. While "Plasma Physics" is acceptable "The 1980 Olympic Hockey US v Finland Game" is not. Please use your best judgment when creating your distribution, remembering that I reserve the right to send back distributions that are obnoxiously specific. If you submit a distribution, the expectation is that you will write the distribution that you receive.
Submissions: People who wish to submit should first email me at egunter127 AT gmail DOT com with your distribution. I ask that all distribution be submitted to me by February 29, 2020 in order to provide people with ample time to write. Your distribution must be submitted as a google sheet linked within the email you send me. I have provided a sample distribution here that I created (this distribution will not be used). Please follow this format in your google sheet. Additionally, I ask that you include "Vanity Insanity" in the subject of your email. Writers will receive their distribution on or before March 5, 2020.
I am hoping to have at least 8 people contribute though I would love to have more. I do ask that people write and develop their distributions alone to keep this in the spirit of Secret Santa
Each packet will consist of 20 tossups only and I will not be cutting questions. I will only be editing packets for grammar and clarity.
Tossups are to be at least six lines Times New Roman size 10 font and no more than nine lines. Please powermark your tossups.
Special thanks to Sam Brochin for coming up with the name Vanity Insanity. I'm hoping to get some great submissions and that we can give a large amount of money to a great cause.
