Essay Challenge 2011 Wrap-up and Giveaway


The 2011 Essay Challenge officially ends next week, and I wanted to give all of you who participated a week’s notice to make sure you qualify for the giveaway.

Here’s what’s up for grabs:


The Best American Essays 2011 edited by Edwidge Danticat and Robert Atwan

In order to qualify, you need to have completed the challenge level you signed up for, as well as have written at least one review of an essay or essay collection. I’ve tried to keep track, but I know there are a lot of you who have written reviews that didn’t get added to Mr. Linky.

Here’s the list of people who I know have reviewed essays – and I’m assuming they’ve finished their challenge:

Stephanie from The Conscientious Reader
Em from C’est la vie
Kelly from The Written World
Ash from English Major’s Narrative
Nathalie Foy
Kim from Bookstore People

I’m sure I’ve missed some of you, so if I did, please let me know in the comments by December 1st that you qualify, and I’ll make sure you’re entered into the giveaway, too. Likewise, if I’m mistaken in thinking that you did complete your challenge, please let me know.

I hope everyone has enjoyed the challenge this year – and that you’ll join me again in 2012. Look for Essay Challenge 2012 to go up very soon. 🙂

    What?! It’s over already?! Time has really flown by this year. I don’t think I can complete my challenge by next week. 🙁 Good luck to everyone who has written a review!

      V – I know – it caught me by surprise, too, when I saw everyone posting their challenge plans for 2012!
