Twittertitters for Comic Relief!

So there's yet another use for Twitter, as it's now being used to raise cash for charidee.

Linda Jones and Louise Bolotin are using Twitter to collect and edit funny short stories, prose and poems for a book - Twittertitters - to be published in aid of Comic Relief.

The resulting book will be published by self publishers, with all proceeds going to Comic Relief.

If you're interested (and if you write funny stuff and/or are interested in supporting Comic Relief, you should be) then check it out here, and send them some work. Short stories, scripts, poems and prose will all be accepted for the anthology and the word limit is 1,400 words. Copyright for the work is retained by the writer.

I've submitted 'Musings on Squirrels' for (hopefully) publication, and am happy to openly offer Twittertitter access to any other piece on here that they think is funny enough and appropriate for the book.

If you're on Twitter, please do follow Linda and Louise, retweet their messages and help with publicising the book as it's for a pretty damn good cause.

More posts on the book and its progress will follow.
