    Well i think after pulp and western fest it would be good to have something lending itself to less 'bad guys in cheap suits' or bandits 1, 2 and 3 :P

    I personally dont think pulpfest worked so well cos it was so vague (in the end...) western fest did much better because at least we got the idea :P

    I'll join in regardless! Not easy picking a fest theme!

    Yes, I tend to agree with Lawrie on that. Even though I have little experience watching Westerns I still found writing for it easier that Pulp Fest, as Pulp Fest was such a vague genre!

    Hmmmm what should be the next Fest... Magician Fest? Telltale Fest? Under the Influence Fest? Documentary Fest? Christmas Fest(Holidays Fest for those whome Christmas is wrong)? The Worst Job Fest? Cops and Robbers Fest? Fat Men in Tight Clothing Fest?
    No Idea Fest!

    I didn't get the chance to enter PulpFest, so I cant comment on how vague it was or anything, but I know I enjoyed how WestFest gave us that structured, direct theme to write around. Made everything much easier, so whatever you guys come up with, make it like WestFest and I'll be all good.

    EroticFest - theres a theme that has been among the greatest influences among of literature, poetry and even film... (er and i don't mean soft core porn like Basic Instinct albeit i love the music score.) - and michael douglas ass in the moon beam shot... er thats a worry!

    I'd like something that is a bit more challenging. We have these good broad genre themes - but within them we're seeing and probably will see - most use them as an easy board of writing and a few attempt something sensational with it. (like the winners of this fest - and a few other underreated imo gems :P)

    Eroticism is a huge challenge to one's intellect and maturity - it would be controversial and interesting especially for our more Puritanical writers (who find it easier to describe a man getting shot between the eyes than a poignancy within ecstacy as it were)

    I'm down for whatever, if it'll stretch my abilities all the better.

    but Lawrie, you just want Eroticfest so you can have an excuse to parade all those pictures of yourself.

    Westerns are a very narrow genre. But what about Fantasy Fest, wouldn't that be more vague than Pulp Fest.

    Yeah well i dont think westerns were too narrow a thematic choice for the fest - i mean the results speak for themselves imo. Where as in pulp fest lets face it - we had occult thrillers like yours Chris - to noir drama's like mine, ww2 comic book action. Personally i found it a bit bewildering and the lack of direction left me out in the cold compared to the direction others took (and im sure others too were a bit kinda lost on their way a little.)

    Fantasy Fest conjures mythology... with the odd fantasy contemp set comedy peeping in :P

    Not a bad suggestion actually but it is again very guy orientated :P Meaty action heroes etc (unless we're writing the tale of the bisexual elf - hey... that would fit eroticfest too!)
