Book Arts Improv: Call #4

Book Arts Improv logoWelcome to the final week of the 5th Annual Book Arts Improv!

In case you’re new here, in a nutshell, the Improv is a four-week stretch of improvisational bookmaking. Depending on the content and complexity of the book, an edition of three or more will be created each week.

Here’s the last call for suggestions:

  1. An embarrassing way to die
  2. World’s worst message from a fortune cookie
  3. Fill in the blank: A ______ walks into a bar…

To participate in the Improv, just comment on this post with a response for each of the three categories listed above. I’d like to keep this suitable for all audiences, so please, nothing offensive.

I will accept suggestions until 5:00 p.m. EST on Tuesday, January 27th. On that day, one entry will be selected at random and not only will that person’s suggestions be used for that week’s book, but the winner will also receive a copy of the book.

This week is also your last chance to get an entry in for the big prize – a set of books that includes each of the four books created during the Improv.

Everyone who has posted suggestions for each week will be entered into a drawing (one entry per person, per week). If you have participated in the Improv for more than one week, each week’s post will count as one entry – if you’ve been following me for four weeks, then your odds are better.

One more thing – if the grand prize winner has already won one of the books earlier in the month, then I’ll send the remaining three books in the set. Another drawing will then be held for the remaining book. Hopefully that all makes sense.

Good luck to everyone!

Velma –

My website is having some problems, as you’ve seen. Sorry about that. Hopefully I’ll have it resolved soon.

White I don’t have any suggestions for this week’s improv #4, I would appreciate having my name entered in the draw for the set of books. Thanks.

Tammy –

The grand prize is drawn from among those who enter the Improv during all four weeks. Without an entry, I have no way to put you in the drawing. 🙁
