You might have noticed we've been a little quiet on the podcast front recently. That's because Paula is on vacation, and both Clare and Kyra have been busy with NaNoWriMo.
We haven't forgotten about the podcast though. We're brainstorming ideas for new episodes, and we're also excited to announce we're hosting the first annual I Literary Can't Even Book Awards.
This is round one, and we invite all of you to add your favourites to the polls!
Every book nominated MUST have been released in 2017.Any that weren't will be removed from the poll.
PLEASE read to check your nomination hasn't already been listed before you add someone new.
Voting will stay open for one week, after which, the top five in each category will move through to the next round, and we will ask you to vote again!
Winners of the final round will be announced on our podcast (Date to be confirmed).
You must like our page I Literary Can't Even for your votes to count.
To cast your votes, please see the polls on our events page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1986202411639524/?active_tab=discussion
We love interaction from readers and writers, so we thought it might be fun to create an I Literary Can't Even... Advent Calendar, as we'd love for you all to contribute.The idea is that every day from December 1, in the lead up to Christmas, we will post a different piece of writing/ poetry/ art/ teaser etc. on the I Literary Can't Even... Facebook, Twitter and website (forth coming). Hopefully that way, we can spread some Christmas cheer, and highlight authors, artists, graphic makers etc. in the community.
The type of things we're looking for are bookish and Christmas themed flash fiction (5000 words max), poetry, excerpts, teasers, graphics, fan art, illustrations, a review of your favourite Christmas story. So it could be something new you write specifically for the advent calendar, it could be an excerpt from your upcoming/ previously released holiday book, it could be a drawing you've done based on your favourite Christmas novel. If you have something in mind that we haven't already mentioned, please drop us an email at ILiteraryCantEven@yahoo.com.
Ideally, we'd like your content three days before your scheduled posting day, just so we have plenty of time to organise each day's entry. You're also welcome to include a link back to your website, Amazon profile, main social media profile, so people can find you.
While we can't guarantee a specific date, we've broken the dates down into 4 weekly blocks, so you can choose your week preference, and we will try to schedule you within that week, where possible. Once the schedule is confirmed, we'll email participants ASAP, so they have plenty of time to prepare their entry.
Any comments, questions and concerns can be emailed to ILiteraryCantEven@yahoo.com.
