This contest is now closed. Thanks to all who entered!
[Update: Well, the 10-sided die has been cast … and lightverse, you are our winner! Congratulations! Please contact me and let me know where you’d like me to send your book. And thanks to everyone who entered. You made my day!]
To celebrate the launch of this new blog, I am giving away an unused paperback copy of the 2010 Writer’s Market published by Writer’s Digest Books. This tome is a great addition to any writer’s toolkit, containing listings for 3,500 places to publish your work. I already own a copy and received this extra one at Christmas — a perfect opportunity for a giveaway!
To be eligible for the drawing, please leave me a comment about science, poetry, or both, on this post only.
- Tell me about your favorite scientific subject, describe a fun science activity, tell me what you like about my other blog, Mama Joules, provide a link to a family-friendly science website, or tell me anything else about science.
- If science isn’t your thing, (drop by my family-friendly science blog, Mama Joules, and then) talk to me about haiku, tanka, haiga, alliteration, Robert Frost, Gwendolyn Brooks, or anything else relating to poetry.
- And if, like me, you enjoy both science and poetry, share your thoughts on Scifaiku, Fibonacci sequence poetry, or some other topic similar to both.
You must include something about science, poetry, or both, in your comment to be eligible for this drawing. I reserve the right to delete any comments that contain spam, sexually explicit references, swearing, or other overtly troll-like content. Please make sure to include enough contact information that I can E-mail you back if you win!
I’ll be accepting comments here for roughly two weeks (until 8 pm EST January 20th) and then I’ll have my husband, Itinerant Cryptographer, help me pick a winner at random (since he does that sort of thing for a living). At that time, I will announce the winner here, by updating this post, and I will request that you contact me by E-mail to claim your prize.
If you are chosen as the winner and haven’t contacted me by 8 pm EST January 24th, you will forfeit the prize and I will draw another name from the list.
I look forward to reading your comments. Good luck!
