A 100 Scope Notes Post Contest, Of Sorts
Let me begin by saying I have no idea how this will go.
I just thought someone out there might have a crazy/bizarre/funny/insane/interesting childrenâ€™s lit-related post that they would like to share with the crazy/bizarre/funny/insane/interesting people who read this blog.
I know you have something to say.
Hereâ€™s the plan. Email me (scopenotes (at) gmail (dot) com) your best idea for a post by midnight on Friday, November 4. It can be one sentence, or a finished piece. Iâ€™ll pick my favorite submission (or submissions, depending on how it goes) and put it up here for all to see. Iâ€™ll hype it to high heaven and also give you your pick of some fabulous book prizes.
PS: Donâ€™t worry, Iâ€™m not trying to do some lame â€œnow I have guest bloggersâ€ switcharoo â€“ itâ€™s just a one-time thing for kicks (unless itâ€™s fun, in which case I might try it again in the future).
A list of topics to consider:
A book-related essay
A story from the library
A unique book review
A video of some sort
Good/bad book covers
An author interview
None of the above
All of the above (that would be crazy)
Send me your ideas (scopenotes (at) gmail (dot) com) by midnight on Friday, November 4.
