Young Bloggers Writing Contest

 Really feeling good about things, lately. So many reasons to celebrate...

...like, my return to W101
...and meeting up with friends, new and old.
..and finding so many new, young bloggers excited about writing..
..and *finally* getting my Wraith Statue...
...and being spotlighted in the newsletter..

I feel a contest coming on....

Yup, gotta do it.

The Young Bloggers for Dworgyn Writing Contest

You all know my "pet project", Tenure for Dworgyn, right? Well, it's apparent I can't do it alone, so I'm enlisting all you younger (under 18) Wizard101 bloggers, to a) recognize you for staying true to your writing, and b) Help get Dworgyn the recognition I believe he so richly deserves. (Well, mostly "a" (but we needed a 'theme', and Dworgyn was willing to play along))

"What is tenure, Autumn?"

Ah, yes. "Tenure is defined (here) as "Promotion from 'assistant' to "senior" Death School instructor. I mean, c'mon, is Moolinda Wu an 'assistant' Life Professor? *NO*, even though she replaced Sylvia Drake. Why should Dworgyn be relegated to 'assistant'? Malistaire is not (I'm pretty sure) coming back. Why, we don't even have a school portrait we Death School students can proudly display..only ruined ones. :(

Anyways, here's the contest: FOR W101 BLOGGERS UNDER 18, ONLY, PLEASE!

Step 1) Copy this graphic, and post it on your blog, then link your post in the comments section. Feel free to link back to this post , so your readers know what you're doing.

 This graphic is your ticket into the contest, bloggers.

Step 2) Essay:(Yeah, this is the 'writing' part ; no less than 100 words) on "why Dworgyn deserves Tenure", on your blog. Make it creative, make it original. Let your writing shine! This is what the contest is *really* about..promoting creative writing. (But hey, if it gets Dworgyn tenure, then *bonus*)

This contest does come with a prize, but it's kinda secret. (No, it *isn't a gobbler*, sorry), but I'll give you a hint: you will be rewarded for defending Dworgyn.

Da Rules
1) Existing blogs only, minimum of 20 posts, (prior to today's date).
2) DO NOT post your email. I will ask you for it if you win.
3) If you've won a prize from 'Homework' in the past 30 days, sorry you can't win, again.
4) Spelling is 'ballpark". Looking for creative writing content here. Express yourself!
5) No, Ashley, you can't enter this one, either.
6) Contest will run until May 10th, 2010 at midnight, E.S.T. Winner announced May 11th.

So, young writers, get to your quill and ink.
