Liz and Francis of Oxford Storypods, the talented folks who put out a very nice audio version of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland paired with a great selection of poems and letters, have just announced a contest for nonsense writing in a Carrollian vein. You can read the details by clicking here. It’s a particularly challenging contest, since your submission must be very brief (max 200 words) as well as good! Two winners will be selected and awarded the aforementioned Storypods audio book, which is well worth a little nonsensical effort. The winning entries may also be professionally recorded.
7/20 PLEASE NOTE: The contest deadline has been extended to August 15th, 2010, to allow you nonsensical writers more time to flex your imaginations. Storypods has asked that you keep your submissions to the 200 word limit. The two winners will be announced on or about August 25th.
Liz and Francis also hosted a A Mad Hatter’s Lunch Party that sounds delightful.
