Default All-Time Writers Draft II



Since the other thread is a bit controversial and slow, I thought we should switch over.

It'll be 10 participants but maybe we'll extend to 12 if there are couple more who want in before the end of round 1.

10 rounds total, 8 hrs to pick for first round and 7 hrs for the remaining rounds. PM your picks in advance, there shouldn't be any reason to get skipped.

Any category that falls under literature can be selected. Your pick can be a poet, novelist, playwright, essayist, philosopher, journalist etc, provided their work is written. Posters who declared for the other draft get first dibs.

Draft Order/PHP:

Things to consider when picking:

- influence on literature and society

- magnus opus (greatness of their greatest work)
- critical acclaim
- variety in your overall "team" (don't just keep picking Victorian novelists for example while ignoring other forms of literature and other genres, diversity matters)

This is going to be a difficult draft to judge.

Thanks Fatal, I'm surely in.


(Thanks also to those who invited me to start the draft thread; I fell asleep before I saw those posts - and that's also the reason why I don't start draft threads: I think it's difficult to be the commish from Europe due to the different time zones)

- maybe something for popularity of their work as well?

if other things come to mind, let me know and we can get down to four or five concrete categories
