The 18th Century Cosmo Contest!

Remember the 18th Century Cosmo cover? It has been suggested by a very clever person that it would be rather fun to recreate some of the articles.

So here’s your challenge: write your own piece for 18th Century Cosmo. It doesn’t have to be one of the topics listed on the cover; in fact, it’s more fun if it’s not. It can be anything you like– article, advice column (“Dear 18th Century Cosmo….”), anything at all you might find in Cosmo, and as long or short as you want it to be.

The submission deadline is next Friday, April 13. Just email me your entry with 18th Century Cosmo in the subject line. I’ll post all the articles on Sunday the 15th and you can vote for your favorites. The winners will be announced on Thursday, April 19.

I haven’t figured out a prize yet…. Signed copies of The Masque of the Black Tulip, in honor of Henrietta? A Pink Carnation mug? A Starbucks card? One of the other Pink books? What do you think would make the best prize for the winners and the three runners-up? I’m taking suggestions!

    Too bad English isn’t my mothertongue, I’m completely unable to write in a 18th-century way… but I’ll be voting enthousiastically for the prose of the contender!! Go willig-maniacs, go!!! 😀

    I think a signed copy of “Black Tulip” would be an excellent prize!
