Dear Bookworms, we are delighted that so many of you are participating in the #BookWormSat every Saturday on Twitter. Reading all your literary tweets, what your favourites are, and discovering new novels, poems and plays to read is absolutely wonderful.
Because the hashtag is growing a little bit every week we thought it would be a good idea to let you know what the themes for the next couple of weeks will be. You can find the schedule below.
Salt & Mirrors & Cats
Message from one of your #BookWormSat hosts Signe Maene:
I’m incredibly humbled to share with you all that I’ll be working with the very creative and talented Superstition Sam, the wonderful artist PrairieBones and my favourite podcast Alternative Stories on a new project that will bring superstitions as short stories, poetry and art to your home!
Salt & Mirrors & Cats will be a vintage style literary magazine and more information about the zine will be published here soon!
|Celebrating Shakespeare and World Poetry Day (21/03) with the theme: sonnets|
|Fools in Literature|
|Romantic Poetry to celebrate Wordsworth’s birthday|
|The Supernatural in Literature to celebrate Henry James’s birthday|
|Picaresque novels to celebrate Henry Fielding’s birthday|
- Sexism, racism, fascism and so on has no place in our community.
- Stay on topic.
- We love to see multiple tweets from the same accounts and we definitely encourage them but please do not flood the hashtag.
- We love gifs too but we think that the silly ones should remain in the gif database.
- The hashtag is about literature. The hosts are writers and we understand how important it is to get your work out there but we would like to ask not to use #BookWormSat to promote your own work.
- And as J.M. Barrie would have said: always try to be a little kinder than is necessary.
Hosts & Hours
The hashtag is hosed by Signe Maene and the brilliant Rachel Deering.
#BookWormSat retweets between 11am and 11pm CET. Tweetdeck is checked every hour for new tweets. Tweets after 11pm will be retweeted Sunday morning.
Other Hosted Hashtags We Love
There is a hosted hashtag for nearly every day of the week where you can go for a dose of literature, folklore, mythology and so much more.
- #FolkloreThursday and their website.
- #FaustianFriday and their permanent hashtag #OfDarkAndMacabre
- #Superstitiology and their website.
- La bibliothèque hantée with the monthly event #GhoulMoon
A massive thank you to every follower and every bookworm who contributes to the hashtag. We love hosting it and all of your tweets always brighten up our Saturdays!
