Calling all young writers in Grades 7 – 12….it’s the 2016 CBC Books Shakespeare Selfie Challenge!! No, they don’t want you to take a photo of yourself dressed like Shakespeare…they want you to do a modern take on one of Shakespeare’s best ideas….the soliloquy! After all, Shakespeare was doing his best to speak to his audience through them, just like young people do with their camera phones today.
Drop by the website, click on the link, and download the topic PDF. Then, write 200-400 words on the subject, and you’re on your way! There are great examples on the site, so you won’t be wondering just how to do this, and you’ll even get to know the judge a bit. Did I mention there is an iPad mini up for grabs for each age group? Why are you waiting? Go and do this now!
Find out everything at the CBC Books Shakespeare Selfie Challenge website.
Now, go forth, and write thee a soliloquy!
