Alright, folks. I am asking for help, which I don’t do very often.
As most of you know, I am in graduate school. I’m currently pregnant with my thesis (read that sentence carefully!) which means I’ve got 9 months until graduation. From now until my “due date” (Mid July 2012 woot woot!), I will be writing a collection of nonfiction linked essays.
But right now, I am working on my (creatively) critical thesis. I’m spending my 3rd semester in graduate school studying the connection between social media and nonfiction writing. Specifically how we can use Facebook posts and Tweets as prompts to write the “true” story.
I’m collecting and editing an anthology of creative nonfiction (in the forms of essays, letters, poetry, lists, etc) based off social media posts.
Not only would I love if you wrote and submitted something to my collection, but I really need help spreading the word. The submission deadline was originally set for November 1, 2011. I’m hoping I can convince someone of you to share the link to my project website ( http://thestorybehindthestatus.com ) or possibly even write a blog post about it. I know that is a lot to ask, but I also know I have some pretty amazing blog friends out there.
In the meantime, would you please take a moment to see what it is all about?
You guys are the best.
