The Fifth Writers' Platform-Building Campaign - coming soon to a blogosphere near you...!!!

So, what do you get when you cross 2 crazy Aussies, a mountain of coffee beans, a dozen broken lead pencils, a super-fast (we wish!) internet connection, and a barrel of squeeeeeees??? That's right...

THE FIFTH WRITERS' PLATFORM-BUILDING CAMPAIGN!!!!!!!

If you're not sure what I'm talking about, pop up to my Campaign page above and have a read. Basically, I've run four Campaigns to date, each with an awesome turn-out of Campaigners - close to 500 Campaigners for one of them! We've even published an ebook with many of the Campaigner Challenge entries! If you're a beginner writer/blogger, someone who is looking to network with other writers, or a writer who wants to have fun and challenge themselves with some awesome Campaigner Challenges (and maybe win a prize or seven), these Campaigns are for you.

Yay! I'm so excited. And so is my new made-of-awesome partner, Cally Jackson. The post you want to read is HERE, because this time, Cally is going to be ringleader-extraordinaire of the adventure that is my Campaigns. She tells you all about it in her post, but in a nutshell, she missed the Campaigns so much that she asked if she could run one for me. Of course I said yes, we've been planning ever since, and September here we come! I'll still be involved and will be working with Cally every step of the way (and we're doing things much the same as in the past), but she's going to be your main point of contact as the Campaign progresses.

The dates you'll need to know are as follows:
  • 1 September: registration opens and the Campaign begins!
  • 7 September: registration closes and no more entries accepted (so don’t be late! )
  • 9-13 September: First Campaigner Challenge
  • 23-27 September: Second Campaigner Challenge
  • 30 September: Campaign ends
Cally will announce everything on her blog, and that's where the sign-up form will be on September 1, but I'll mirror most of her posts to remind you what's happening.

So, have you read Cally's post yet? Pop over to Cally Jackson Writes if you haven't, and don't forget to subscribe to her blog so you can get all the latest info about the Campaign as it comes out.

Are any of you as excited as I am??? :)

I was just wondering about your campaigns a few days ago. I participated in two, and they were great fun. I hope I can participate. I'll know sooner to the date. A lot of things are up in the air right now.

HURRAH! Can't wait for September! (And honestly, I'm glad to see it'll be a bit shorter than before, and not running right into NaNoWriMo.)

Crystal Collier said...

Yay! I missed the campaign's too. How did I miss the 4th? *scratching head* Well, no matter, September first is marked on my calendar. Here's to the campaign!

I might have to try it this time. I just lost my blog yesterday with 1000 followers (someone stole my domain!). Fortunately I started a new blog yesterday for NA. Are you going to have a NA category????

SC Author said...

Woo! This sounds awesome. And holy crap, Stina - if you're reading this - that's insane. I loved your blog.

I wondered what had become of the Platform-Building Campaign... if I remember correctly, the last one was in 2011?

I was simply pondering about your battles a couple of days back. I partook in two, and they were extraordinary fun. I trust I can partake. I'll know sooner to the date. A considerable measure of things are open to question at this time. raise money online
