CRYING CONTEST

If you enjoy reading Electric Literature, join our mailing list! We’ll send you the best of EL each week, and you’ll be the first to know about upcoming submissions periods and virtual events.

For our most recent contest, we asked you to recount your worst weather experiences. We won’t stop there. This time, we actually want photos of you crying.

OK, it doesn’t have to be you.

(1) Get a picture of someone crying and add a saucy caption

(2) Post it here, or on twitter using the hashtag #crying4xmas

(3) Contest ends Dec. 23rd

Three lucky winners will receive a copy of Jim Hanas’s Why They Cried on Christmas morning! Get a taste of Jim’s writing here.

WINNERS POSTED!
