CBC’s Canada Writes…don’t miss the Dec. 18, 2012 challenge!

If you’re a Dr Seuss fan, use twitter, and like a challenge, you could win an i-Pad from CBC’s Canada Writes program.
For the past week Canada Writes has been celebrating Seusstivus – their homage to the wonderful ways that children’s book authors capture a child’s imagination.

Now it’s your turn to play!

Their next Twitter writing challenge will be taking place tomorrow (Tuesday, December 18) from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST. And they want you to participate!

They won’t be revealing the exact theme of the challenge until tomorrow morning, but  it has something to do with the holidays, so get out the eggnog and put on your thinking caps.

The grand prize is an iPod Touch!

They’’ve partnered with the Canadian Society of Children’s Authors, Illustrators, and Performers (CANSCAIP) for the challenge. CANSCAIP members will be reading your Tweets and interacting with you throughout the day.

They’ll also be giving away amazing books by Canadian Children’s authors every hour.

The judge for the challenge is the CBC’s Jonathan Goldstein (of Wiretap fame). Jonathan will be playing the role of the Grinch in the upcoming CBC/McGill production of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” broadcast on CBC Radio One on Christmas Day.

So, be sure to visit www.cbc.ca/canadawrites tomorrow morning to find out the details of the challenge.


Also, don’t forget that the CBC’s Creative Nonfiction Competition is now on. One lucky winner will receive $6,000 from the Canada Council for the Arts, publication in enRoute magazine, and a two-week residency at The Banff Centre.

The deadline for the competition is February 1st 2013. So think about using your upcoming holidays to tell your story.
