This is not specifically about unschooling, but just didn't see a forum specifically for it. It's not really off topic because it does include writing, so here goes anyway.


Are you up to the challenge? Twitter is hosting its second annual Twitter Fiction Contest.

This is a copy of the release:


Today the Association of American Publishers (
@AmericanPublish) and Penguin Random House (@PenguinRH_News), in partnership with Twitter, announced the second #TwitterFiction festival, which will take place March 12-16. A digital storytelling extravaganza, the festivalís value is twofold: it gives authors of all kinds a chance to bring fiction to life with Twitter, and gives readers a chance to experience fiction in a brand new way.

The#TwitterFictionfestival offers a chance to be afeatured storytellerand create 140-character blasts of fiction on Twitter alongside established and emerging authors.
Twitter is a wide-open frontier for creative experimentation, and #TwitterFiction is a wonderful way to push traditional boundaries. You can create Vine videos, develop multiple fictional accounts, use crowd-sourcing or make use of any other Twitter functionality to weave a story.
Entries for #TwitterFiction will be accepted online here until February 5, and will be judged by a panel of executives from @AmericanPublish companies.

The panel will highlight select participants to create fiction on Twitter as part of the week-long, real-time digital festival. These featured authors will be a part of the official schedule, and will be chosen based on creativity, writing talent and unique use of Twitter functionality.
