Yes, snarkers, April 9th marks six long years of Son of Stuck Funky, and I felt it was time to liven things up with a contest to win one of two incredibly lame, Funky Winkerbean themed “prizes.” Rather than do a random giveaway, I came up with a contest format which didn’t seem that complicated until I tried to spell out the rules, but here goes.
“Guest Author for a Day”
Five contest entrants (if we even get enough interested parties) will be selected to write one day’s post during the week*, giving his or her unique take on the given day’s Funky Winkerbean strip. Then over the following weekend, your fellow snarkers will vote to select whose post they liked the best. The winner will receive a copy of Lisa’s Story: The Other Shoe, personally autographed by Mr. Batiuk. The runner up gets the other piece of FW ephemera I have laying around: a 2 1/4″ “Wild About Reading” button, designed by TB for a 1991 literacy campaign.
*If I get at least one or two volunteers by this evening, the contest will run tomorrow thru Friday; if not, we’ll hold off ’til next week.
- SoSF will make every effort to provide guest authors with a link to preview their day’s comic ahead of time.
- Experience using WordPress is a plus, but lack thereof is not a barrier. You may submit your post via email, as a .txt or .doc, or will be given temporary Author permission to post directly in WordPress.
- May lead to future Guest Authorship!
