It’s also a time to discover some great writing if you’re of the ‘reader’ variety – and we have a Twitter account to tell you about that will be sharing 30 poets’ work during these 30 days of April.
It’s called 30 Poets/ 30 Days.
We know you don’t care about these lists (unless you’re on them), but they DO make for an interesting read most times – if only because we get to marvel about “who voted for these people anyway?!”
And this list is pretty interesting besides. No, not just because one of Twitter’s co-founders is on it, but because you can see the voting results in action – and there’s still time to cast yours.
So you only have yourself to blame on this one, really.
It’s National Poetry Month! And – arguably, a piece of flash fiction IS a poem, so what better time to host our second AllTwitter Flash Fiction (poetry) contest?
Do you have what it takes to be crowned champion? Read on to find out!
Have you ever tried searching for a job on Twitter? There are lots of opportunities out there if you know where to look. The same goes for internships – and Mastercard is making it simple to find theirs on Twitter.
They’ve launched an #InternsWanted search and the person they’re looking for may just be you!
There’s a Shorty Award category focused on honoring a #mom or #dad who is passionate about their family, and uses social media to help and inspire others to do the same. They #KeepGoodGoing online with their efforts. You can read about the finalists below.
And one of the judges of this category has some great advice about parents following kids on Twitter. We’re interesting in hearing your reaction to it.
If you’re a writer of all things poetic, you’ll want to check this out. The New York Public Library is hosting it’s first ever national poetry contest.
But you only have until March 10 to enter, so hurry up (because the rules are a little confusing)!
Have a great song, but short on audience? This contest is for you.
Upload it and get enough votes and you can win the promotional opportunity of a lifetime.
When launching AllTwitter’s first Flash Fiction Contest, I expected to see the good, bad and ugly from Twitter’s writing community – and participants did not disappoint.
But I also held out hope that something great – something that would make me stand on my chair and say “wow!” – would rise to the top. And boy did it ever.
Although we had quite a few fantastic submissions, this person’s was the most fantastic-est by far. Not only because he received the most retweets, but because this person, as a whole, is a true flash fiction ninja.
So, now that I’ve set your expectations ridiculously high, I crown (oh, you didn’t know winning this came with a crown?) the winner of our first flash fiction contest, Flash Fiction Ninja: Motke!
We know there are many, many writers on Twitter, so this should be fun. We want to see who can come up with the best piece of flash fiction in one tweet – and we’ll then highlight that winner in an upcoming post.
Is that person you?
Ooo, this is going to be good.
