If you’re a blogger with a story to tell, we want to hear from you!
Blog Out Loud features 10 local bloggers reading their favourite posts from the past year. This event would not be possible without brave souls coming forward to submit their writing for presentation.
We’re looking for posts that reflect your personality and voice. Posts that tell a story or capture a moment or share a thought or idea. Posts that rant, or make us laugh, or make us cry, or are just plain silly. You can see samples of the posts that have been read in the past here, or here, or here.
Your post should be able to be read aloud in less than five minutes, but don’t worry about length too much. We’ll let you know if your post is selected if it needs to be edited for length. Also, to qualify you will have had to have made a minimum of 5 blog posts over the past year.
If you have a post that requires photos or images, we should have a screen and projector available for you to use.
The submitted posts will be reviewed by an awesome panel of bloggers and writers and 10 will be selected to read at this year’s event. We’re also, as usual, looking for a few dedicated souls (who won’t be submitting) who are willing to serve on the selection panel. That involves reading all the submitted posts over one weekend and sending me some rankings and comments, all for the glory of my mega thanks on this blog. If you’re interested, drop me a line!
Submissions or volunteer offers or any other inquiries can be sent to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
