Now I’m just getting ridiculous
FYI, the level of stupidity displayed in my titles is directly proportionate to how much sleep I’ve had. You’re all doomed.
First thing’s first. Congratulations to my American followers on #Obama2012.
I can’t help wondering how MENA/Asia/any-where-else-in-the-world feels about both the outcome and the fact that the west never seems to pay as much attention to their elections as they do to the American ones.
Moving on. Ok onto some quick food for thought.
I’ll be interested to know what my femme followers think about the credibility and implications of gender exclusive literary competitions. Helpful or Harmful?
In other news, Travel Blackboard ran an article on Tuesday about Bangkok’s first literary festival.
More for Australian peeps (sorry non-Aus followers, I’ll post non-Aus relevant prizes soon I promise).
Entries for the Sydney Theatre Company’s Patrick White Playwright’s Award and fellowship closes TOMORROW. If you’re over 18 and have a full length unproduced play just lying around, get off your butt and enter. There’s a total prize pool of $35,500 to be had. Plus there’s a picture of Patrick White staring you down, I don’t know about you but that makes me want to enter, if only to avoid his posthumous judgement.
Now I have to
get out of my pajamas and get ready for my day job do lots of important artistic things so I’m going to leave you to get Caught Out with the ABC’s 500 word story competition.
I’m not really sure if you win anything but hey, you can submit your 500 word masterpiece and feel chuffed when they feature it on their website. And
this early in the morning that’s good enough for me.
Plus there’s a picture of someone in plaid looking shocked. You know that’s a good sign. November’s theme is Someone who shaped me. So get to it minions!
