Kristin’s Touch Base Tuesday: Journals, Awards & NaNoWriMo
Hiya, this one is for you writers!
I encourage you to all stay tuned to the RRP Blog in the next couple days as we have been brainstorming how to increase the current platforms for writers. At the moment, we have several opportunities…
The Ram Boutique – Literary Journal
We have one Highlighted Author place left open for our literary journal! If you want the chance to become our final writer for the year, be sure to send in your submission before November 1, 2014. You will be featured with 11 other talented writers that have been published on the RRP Blog. By getting your name onto the RRP back-list, all future submissions (such as manuscripts) will go to the top of our slosh piles. Not to mention, that when we have other opportunities that would encourage you to expand your writing portfolio, you will be the first to know.
Story of the Month Awards
Every month, a top-secret member of our Blogging Team searches all blogging platforms to find the most incredible fiction writers. We feature them on the blog for a month with a short story, poem or excerpt that they have previously posted on their blogs. As we congratulate them for their bravery in expressing their words in this format, we direct our followers to their blog and other social media outlets. While you cannot submit to win this particular award, you can recommend your friends or favorite blogs to receive this special attention.
This is a smaller announcement, to a much bigger announcement: River Ram Press has always wanted to become involved with this challenge for writers. This November, for the first time, we will be emotionally sponsoring one writer to use our personal account on the site to try and complete the challenge. However, we would love to hear from anyone who has also decided to step up to try and write the 50,000 words. If you get in touch with us we may ask you for interviews, excerpts, strategies and more for the RRP blog as you dive head first into this year’s NaNoWriMo.
Cheers, Kristin Bergene x
Kristin’s Touch Base Tuesday is my way to personally reach out to everyone who has joined the River Ram Press community. We welcome all who treasure the written word through reading and writing (even through other visually creative means), who wish to engage with those of a similar mindset. With these quick posts I will make every attempt to answer all your questions / ideas / imaginations, offer chances for you to write for our blog, as well as other ways to join the RRP Publishing Team, but most importantly to inspire writers and inspire readers.
