Editor’s Corner: A New Contest

Since you are already subscribers to the Editor’s Corner, you already know it’s full of helpful tidbits and answers to grammar and language questions you have, but were afraid to ask. Today, I’d like to encourage you to share the word with your buddies and get them to sign up, too.

You can send your friends to Editor’s Corner for a look at our daily fare, or have them follow us on Twitter at Symitar_EpisysU.

THE CONTEST
Who: Any and all JHA associates
What: Get non-subscribers to join the Editor’s Corner e-mail group
Where: All JHA offices and outposts
When: Now through the end-of-business on August 16, 2013
Why: Because my minions and I adore the English language and we want to share the love

How do you enter the contest?
Ever played Mad Libs? It’s a game where you are asked for different parts of speech and you deliver names, nouns, numbers, verbs, adverbs, and so on, to fill in the details of a “story.” The clincher is that you do not know what the story is! Your answers are entered into the right spots, and then the story is read to everyone. The more creative you are, the funnier the topic can be.

  • Round up a co-worker or co-workers who would like to subscribe (please get their permission first)
  • Jot down their names and e-mail addresses
  • Click one of the following links to a topic of your choice:
  • Fill in your info, complete your Mad Lib, and click Submit.
  • Submissions will be reviewed in the context of the corresponding “story.”

    Note: Not into games? You can just send me an e-mail at kchurch to sign up. If you recommend Editor’s Corner to somebody else and they sign up, make sure they include your name so that you get the points.

Prizes:

  • The person who wrangles the most new subscribers wins a $25.00 Amazon gift card.
  • The funniest Mad Lib answer wins a $25.00 Amazon gift card and I’ll publish your full story and answers in the Editor’s Corner after August 16.

Additional Rules:

  • Subscribers must be new to my Editor’s Corner distribution list
  • You can send your list of new subscribers:
  • All at once via e-mail
  • All at once when you fill out a Mad Lib form
  • One new subscriber name per Mad Lib (which increases your chances to win Funniest Mad Lib Answer gift card)
  • In the case of a tie for most names submitted, we will draw a winner from a hat (or lunchbox or broken vase)
  • In the case of a tie for funniest story, we will leave the vote up to the subscribers
  • One prize per customer

  1. So, you have minions. A certain green, westward hailing, femme thaumaturge did too. Interesting comparison.
