What an eventful month we have had here at The River since the last time I spoke to all of you. We held the Poetry Slam, picked up three new writers, and made a gigantic decision that will affect you and all of us starting next month. Don’t worry it is positive. Actually, its absolutely wonderful…..and thats right, I’m not going to tell. It is a surprise that you can open Februry 3rd.
The Poetry Slam was such a big hit that we decided to make them a quarterly event on their own site. The first Poetry Slam of the year will be held February 14th. The new site f0r slams is located over in bloogger but, the doors will be shut until sometime in the beginning of February. Then they will open for viewing and learning the ins and out of recording, uploading, and linking up. I will announce through Facebook and Twitter when the doors open.
While you all wait for that contest we have another that starts today-the Winter/Summer Writing Challenge. Our seasonal contest ( Dare Ya) that challenges by means of prompt and deadline. We have a video prompt this season from Gregory Colbert’s series, Ashes and Snow. For more information and to view the video click Here.
Our team has grown again with three new contributor writers. I am happy to introduce Tommy Herman aka Twowolvz, James Orbesen, and Jenna aka L.M. Young. Welcome to the River Team.
