CONTEST: #FictionDates

An aspiring actress meets an Icelandic Yak farmer on a matchmaking site. A cancer support forum means romance for an English professor, a Canadian fisherman, and an elementary school teacher in Japan. You inhabit a famous literary character tweeting romantic overtures hashtagged #fictiondate.

The first two sentences sum up stories from Elizabeth Cohen’s The Hypothetical Girl which threads online interaction through its plots. The third is how you can win a signed copy of the book and tote bags from Other Press.

Tweet as a famous literary persona (living, dead, or fictional) something that captures the #FictionDate theme to enter. For example: “I’m looking for someone flawless with whom I can paint the town red. — @PatBateman #FictionDates”

Author Elizabeth Cohen will pick the prize-winners, and the best tweets will be featured here on The Outlet.

Tweet your most charming and/or scandalous #FictionDates by 6 pm EST today, Aug 7. And don’t forget to include the #FictionDates hashtag.
