I like where Wendy Wimmer’s heart is.

22 Sep

Wendy Wimmer is eating her money by giving away subscriptions to lit journals, and I like her for that.

Here’s how to enter!
Leave a comment [at Wendy Wimmer’s blog] with just four easy answers:

  • What was the name of the last lit journal you read?
  • What was the last journal where you submitted your work?
  • Your email address in the blog comment system (just make sure you use a real email address and only I can see it, promise), and
  • Which lit journal would you like a subscription to?

That’s all. Easy, right?

Who’s eligible for this giveaway
Writers who are too poor to buy subscriptions to lit journals and don’t have access to fabulous libraries such as Marne’s. I’m not going to ask for proof of income — this is totally on the honor system. I mean, don’t kid yourself: if you’re stopping at Starbucks more than once a week for a mocha, be cool and leave the prizes to the people who are really hurting in this godforsaken economy.

Also, to keep things fair, if I know you, you’re not eligible for this contest. Sorry it has to be that way, but I’d be happy to give you some lit journals next time I see you. I promise not to give you the ones that have been in my john.

Multiple Winners!
This contest will go until Oct 14 when the prizes will be awarded, with the first winner getting a subscription of their choice. If the first winner’s subscription is less than $100, I’ll draw again, and the second winnner’s subscription will similarly come from that $100 pot. I’ll keep picking comments until I’ve purchased at least $100 of subscriptions for as many commenters as possible. Also, you can comment as many times as you want, but only your first comment on this entry counts. Does that make sense? Ok, that’s how it will work. I hope I’ve covered everything.

    This is such a great idea! I got here via a convoluted path (Versal email, Versal blog post, HTML Giant post) and I’m happy I made it. Ok, here are my answers, as a poor writer indeed:

    What was the name of the last lit journal you read? – OneStory
    What was the last journal where you submitted your work? – Pleiades
    Your email address in the blog comment system (just make sure you use a real email address and only I can see it, promise), and
    Which lit journal would you like a subscription to? – Subtropics

      Oh, I guess I should clarify: you enter at Wendy’s blog. Sorry!
