"Shakespeare Selfie" writing challenge for Canadians

shakespeare selfie-small body.jpgShakespeare took selfies all the time. But instead of a camera, he used a quill.

From April 14 to May 9, Canada Writes will be asking Canadians to take a Shakespearean character, situate him or her in a present-day scenario, and write a new soliloquy or monologue for them.

Challenge will be open to Canadians aged 12 and over. Prize: an iPad mini for entrants aged 12-18, one for entrants 19 and over.
