According to the FAQ:

The Exchange at Fic Corner is a gen, het, femslash, and slash multifandom secret fiction exchange for kids' and YA book/short story fandoms. The name was ruthlessly stolen from that classic of children's literature, The House at Pooh Corner. Basically? This is for the book fandoms that you loved or would have loved as a kid (even if you just read them for the first time a week ago).
The Exchange at Fic Corner was inspired by Yuletide (the obscure or rarely written fandoms project) and much of the format and rules are based off that exchange.

Nominations & signups generally occur in July, with the archive opening in September.
