Samuel L. Jackson Could Read Your Writing Out Loud

If you share a 300-word monologue on Reddit, you could win a chance to have the great actor and audiobook narrator Samuel L. Jackson read your work.

Jackson posted about the online event yesterday, so you only have until the end of the day (Thursday night PST) to write your passage. The whole writing contest will help raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Society. Check it out:

It’s simple, write 300 words and the most upvoted post I’ll read out loud in monologue form. I’m doing this for one of my favorite non-profits, Alzheimer’s Society, as my family have been unfortunate enough to have been affected by the disease. As a BONUS, I’m offering you all the chance to be flown to the UK for lunch with ME in return for just a tiny donation to this amazing cause. I’ll also sign a beloved Kangol hat and mail it to anyone that donates $200 or more! Check it out at Prizeo.
