What is Create?
Create is a series of themed challenges. We hope to provoke h2g2 researchers into feats of wilder research, more studious creative writing, tastier visual arts, more lyrical fun and wonderfully composed biscuits.
Scroll down the page to see our official volunteers. If you are a current volunteer, please subscribe to Create's journals by adding 'Create' to your list of friends.
November: h2g2's NaJoPoMo
We're delighted to be able to present h2g2's NaJoPoMo for 2013. After the success of last year's event, Create again challenges you to write something in your journal every day in November. We welcome fact, fiction, jokes, poetry - you decide. If you want to join in, instructions are at h2g2's NaJoPoMo 2013
October: What's Your Style?
This month, Create asks whether you follow the fashions, or slop about in the same old things. Send us your views about fashion, photos and articles about clothing. See What's Your Style?
September: Back to School
Did you love school, or hate it? Either way, Create wants to hear from you. Send us your memories of school, with photos, or write an article inspired by a school subject. See Back to School.
August: The Soundtrack of Your Life
We all have a soundtrack to our lives. So, this month, Create invites you to write about the music that is important to you. Tell us about your favourite songs and performers and the gigs you've enjoyed, at The Soundtrack of Your Life
As this is the season for pottering about outdoors, Create invites you to write about gardens. Give us your gardening tips, or tell us about the places you love to visit, or your favourite plants, at Gardens
June: One Page Poetry
Remember fridge magnet poetry? Magnetic words, rearranged a bit, then a bit more, until hey presto, poetry! Pastey has invented our own not entirely dissimilar version for your Creative delight. If you'd like to take part, we have the instructions right here: One-Page-Poetry
May: Towel Day 2013
Towel Day 2013 came and went, and Create invited all interested h2g2ers to share their towel-carrying experiences by photographing the evidence and then sending it to us on our Facebook page, via Twitter @h2g2_Guide or [email protected] We promised to publish them. Eventually. Our fingers wer worn to the bone and we had no idea just how successful this would be. A huge wave of thanks to all who sent contributions. We were overwhelmed, in a very happy way
So, without further ado, here's a picture link to our gallery of your contributions to the Towel Day 2013 event.

April: Tell Us About Your Travels.
This month, Create invites you to celebrate spring by writing about your travels. Can you tell us about a journey you enjoyed (or hated) or an interesting place you visited? See Tell Us About Your Travels.
March: A CHALLENGE from Dmitri.
This month, Create cannot think of anything better than to draw your attention to a CHALLENGE issued by our beloved Guide Editor, Dmitri. Take it away, Dmitri!
February: Family Photos.
The Create team invites h2g2ers to look for family photos and write about them. Do you have a photo that you would like to share with us? Or one that inspires you to write an Edited Guide article, a story, or a poem? See Family Photos.
January: Things. Or perhaps Stuff.
The Create team invite h2g2ers to put holiday bounty to good use - in writing. Do you have a product review to share? How about an adventure any Christmas gifts started for you? Check out the New Year's challenge here.
Solnushka is planning NaJoPoMo again! We are truly delighted!!
Following from the very successful challenge last November, we are pleased to be running NaJoPoMo once again. Full details can be found here
Solnushka and our the Create volunteers welcome all participants, new or old to h2g2. We'll look forward to reading your journals. Good luck!
October: Spooky Fun
28th October Create were pleased to invite you to the performance of 'It's my Party, and I'll die if I want to'. Someone died, and a lot of people were suspects. Thank you to all those that helped plan, write and act this entertainment. We found it great fun to do, and hope that we can do this again in the future.
Many thanks to all those who made it even more fun by playing along during the evening, and an especial thanks to those who sent in their solutions to the mystery.
We will be printing the correct solution in this weekend's Post. Mind you, some of the alternative solutions that were sent in were even more imaginative. Great fun to read.
In the meantime, Dmitri requested spooky stories for the Post, so get over there and read what the other researchers sent in.
September: Food and Drink
We asked you to share a favourite family recipe. We had some really fabulous recipes - many thanks to all who took part.
August: Elton Abroad and Summer Reading
Two interesting topics this month. So, we're really looking forward to a bumper crop of entries. Find out what is happening to Elton - have you seen him in your locality? If so we want photographic evidence please. Or simply tell us about your favourite summer read. Or, take part in both these challenges. Huge thanks to Tavaron this month for her inspiration behind Elton's Great Escapade.
Challenge Extra: July to September
We've two new challenges to hopefully inspire you which will run over the next three months. Please take a look at our introductory page. Ask questions if you need further help or advice.
July: Sport and Personal Fitness
Nosebagbadger generously accepted the role of host for this challenge, which has now ended. The challenge page for July is Create: Sport and Personal Fitness Challenge. Thank you to all who took part.
June: Got the Music in You?
The challenge has now ended, so be sure to contact Z to claim the Create participant badge for the month.
If you'd like advance notice of our future ideas please take a look at Create's planning page. Do drop by. Unless, of course, you want it all to be a surprise.
