Studies show that people are more likely to vote if their friends and others they respect are doing so. We're 200 writers strong, and we're planning two coordinated outreaches on social media to encourage readers to register and to vote. We'll use the hastag #BooktheVote, and posting within a short time slot to maximize social media trending.
If you're a published writer and would like to join us, this is the place. (If you're not a published writer, please go back to www.bookthevote.org and click on the other link!)
After you've registered here, Meg will add your name at BookTheVote.org by cut and paste so PLEASE, under the name tab, include only your full name, first name first, followed by a comma and a one-word description of the primary kind of writer you are (e.g. novelist, screenwriter, poet, memoirist, journalist...if you're a nonfiction writer, you can use two words, and short story writers, you can have three). Many of us write in many areas, and I know it's hard to pick, but please, just imagine you are in the voting box with lots of great choices! We're trying to keep writer names to one line each.
Please opt in through the confirming email to make sure you're included and will get the emails when we're ready to post.
