Some Crickhollow News (Crispin’s Sister Press): Party Time!
Who doesn’t love a birthday party? Who doesn’t love books, especially when produced by high quality small presses? Crickhollow Books invites you to share the celebration at their 5th anniversary literary birthday bash. Beer, books, prizes, and good cheer. Anyone in the Milwaukee area is invited to pop in to Big Bay Brewing Company in Shorewood (4517 N. Oakland Ave.) on Sunday afternoon, Nov. 17 (1-4 p.m.).
They’ve also posted a contest for an “ultra-short” creative Thanksgiving story (link), with a fifty dollar indie-bookstore gift certificate to the first place winner. Five finalists will win a copy of How To Write Your Best Story from Crickhollow Books. The challenge of fifty words or less is daunting (speaking for myself here) but give it a try. You’ll end up with a thoughtfully crafted piece of writing to share at the holiday table, win or lose. The post spells out the rules and offers links to helpful tips, too.
HAPPY 5th ANNIVERSARY, CRICKHOLLOW!
May you have many more celebrations to come.
