Tolkien Femslash week is doing a challenge which invites you to make prompts from a list of Sappho quotations (or fragments).
The current SWG challenge suggests combining the song prompts with the Femslash challenge, if it works for you.

I like Sappho so I thought this  was a lovely idea. I made up some prompts, in case anyone is interested, i.e. I picked quotations and added a f/f pairing from the Legendarium that came to mind.(I'm afraid some of the more popular pairings are not included.)

They are posted to Tumblr but I'll also copy them in below.

Links on the list below go to the Table of Contents, where you can find author's notes and more information about the story. If you enjoy a story, please consider commenting and letting the author know.

As I am in the midst of the Mereth Aderthad, stamps will be later than usual this month. I will try to have them updated by the middle of next week. If there are any drastic changes to that timeline, I will let everyone know.

Ooh.

My YOI Ship* Bingo card. There are ships I love and have written, there are ships I love and haven’t written, and there are ships that will be a challenge. Nice mix. :D

* Both platonic and romantic relationships count for this - eee.

July 2017 SWG Challenge Just an Old-Fashioned Love SongDuring the month of July, fanworks creators around the world celebrate love. July has been reserved for honoring both the femslash and slash genres. Half of the world is sultry with summer heat, and half of the world seeks nearness and warmth to banish winter's chill.

For this month's challenge, you will use a popular love song as a prompt to inspire a fanwork about romantic or sexual love. You will choose your own prompt from the list of love songs below. More than one participant may choose the same song, and you may use any aspect of the song--the title, all or part of the lyrics, the mood or style of the music, or the music video--or any combination!--to inspire your response. You don't need to claim a prompt or comment or do anything but create your fanwork! Any pairing or poly relationship is acceptable for the challenge.

Our friends at Tolkien Femslash Week will be hosting their challenge as well, and as always, feel free to combine our challenge with your work for their challenge. If you do, please make a note in the summary or story notes so that we can award stamps accordingly.

Since I am a day late in posting the challenge, the due date for stamps will be 11 August 2017.. Late stories are always welcome but will not receive a stamp.

If you're new to our challenges, check out the full challenge guidelines here.
