What is the Tar Valon Times Takeover?

The Tar Valon Times Takeover is exactly what it sounds like! For one week at the start of each month from November 2020 to December 2021, each membership group at TarValon.Net will be “taking over” the Tar Valon Times. The aim of the TVT Takeover is to showcase each membership group, their work (inside or outside TarValon.Net), their favourite artists, books, or memes, and much more. Through this series each group will have the opportunity to present their TVT to the readers of the Tar Valon Times, both within TarValon.Net and beyond.

In November 2020, the Citizens of TarValon.Net put together the very first Tar Valon Times Takeover!
