Join Literary Mama and Literary Reflections Editor Kate Hopper on a virtual book tour and contest.
Kate will host the book tour for her newly-released book, Use Your Words: A Writing Guide for Mothers. Each weekday from Friday, May 4th to Wednesday, May 30th, Kate will write a post about the blog host at her popular site, Motherhood and Words, express her gratitude to her facebook friends, and tweet like a songbird.
Use Your Words is the first book to focus on the craft of writing using motherhood as the lens, but it doesn't just focus on how to fit writing into a busy life. Instead, Use Your Words focuses on the craft of creative nonfiction, and how a blogger can take her stories and experiences as a mother up to the next level and become part of the Motherhood Literati.
On participating blogs, submit up to 600 words in response to the writing prompt. The host site will select an entry and forward it to Kate. The winning entry from each site will receive a copy of Use Your Words. The overall winning entry (chosen by Kate) will be published in early June, here, on Literary Mama's blog, and the writer will receive a one-hour writing consultation with Kate, via phone or Skype.
