Signups open a little over an hour! That's a perfect amount of time to start sharing your Dear Crossovering Creator Letters!
These letters are 100% optional but highly
encouraged (particularly due to the nature of this exchange). If you've never participated in an exchange like this before, a Dear Creator Letter is a post at your DW or Tumblr, etc. detailing your requests and giving your assigned creator ideas for possible art or fic. These letters also include your likes, dislikes, and any triggers you might have. You can link them here, as well as in your sign-up form. How you format or write them is entirely up to you.If you have any triggers (things that may cause you harm if you read about them), we highly recommend that you make that clear in your letter as well as in the optional details on your signup.
Not every participant clicks through to letters, and this is the best way to cover your bases so that your creator will not unintentionally use your triggers.

or letters from previous years
Keep in mind that letters are completely optional
, which also means that creators are in no way required to follow the optional details. The only requirements are that they use the fandoms you matched on and that they respect your DNWs. Essentially: Optional details are optional
. However, works intentionally including the recipient's stated triggers will be removed from the collection and the creator may be barred from future participation at modly discretion.
If you are posting a link to your letter here, we ask that you copy/paste the following when you comment:
