Create a Genie for Chance to Win $100 Local Bookstore Gift Certificate

To promote G. Willow Wilson’s debut novel Alif the Unseen, Grove/Atlantic has a new “Create-a-Genie” contest, inviting artists, photographers and other digital creators to imagine a mythical jinn.

Here’s more about the contest: “Click on “The Five Types of Jinn” to learn about the five different species of jinn that appear in the book, and have a look at illustrator Lisa Brown’s beautiful depictions of each jinn for inspiration. Then pick your favorite jinn and show us your original vision for how it looks. We’ll accept drawings, paintings, collages, photos, just about anything you can send digitally! E-mail your entry to aliftheunseen@gmail.com.”

The winner will get a $100 gift certificate for a local bookstore, a copy of the novel and piece of art from Willow’s graphic novel Cairo. Two other winners will get a signed copy of Alif the Unseen. The contest closes at 11:59 p.m. EST on Monday, August 13.
