Twittering Thursday – 2
The Etisalat Prize for Arabic Children’s Literature was launched at BEA and is the world’s biggest children’s book prize to be launched (via @worldbooktrade).
@thecreativepenn was tweeting about Project Gutenberg’s new goal of reaching one billion readers. She also mentioned a writing contest for Science Fiction writers. The theme of the contest is What if?
Remember our post on the unofficial sequel of Catcher in the Rye? @TheBookseller led us to the article on Salinger’s lawyers seeking to block the sequel. Ficly is a place for playing with story-telling; a collaborative environment where anyone can pick up a narrative thread and weave a prequel or sequel. @thinkmaya sent us to this collaborative storytelling site.
@BookChook has a free digital magazine on her site for parents with tips to encourage kids to read, write, create.
@paperbackjack tweeted about writing in the digital age and the importance of different reading platforms.
@indianfolklore spread the news about the Indian Folklife issue on Multi-lingual Education for Indigenous Communities. The last link is a link we tweeted to our friends on Twitter. Take a look at the ‘book book shelf‘ – a shelf made of discarded books!
