Colson Whitehead to Judge Electric Literature Twitter Contest

shapeimage_1.jpgNovelist Colson Whitehead and the literary journal Electric Literature will host the Stuff My Muse Says contest on twitter this week. Running from today until Friday, April 2nd, one lucky Twitter writer will win a Sony eReader.

Following the lead of web phenomenon S*** My Dad Says, readers can submit inspiring, mundane, comical, or sad things they learned from their inspirational muse. Whitehead shared this tweet: “I had a cat. The cat died. Now all the stuff I used to say to the cat all day, I tweet!”

Here’s more about the contest, and the big prize: “The best tweet your muse say wins, and s/he doesn’t have to be literary–anything goes. The only rule: Put the #stuffmymusesays hashtag at the end of every tweet. All tweets with this hashtag will be automatically entered, and Colson Whitehead will pick the winner. The writer of the winning tweet will receive a BRAND NEW SONY eREADER, as well as honor, glory, and fame.”
