So what is Queer YA Scrabble? you ask. It’s an event running from June 6th-8th to support
Stonewall-UK and increase awareness of QUILTBAG YA books. Starting tomorrow, anyone interested in participating will hunt for letters hidden in super sneaky blog posts featuring the books and then you guys will solve an anagram to compete for a chance to win a box stuffed full of really awesome QUILTBAG YA books. Yay!
After the giveaway, there will be an auction for another set of the book-boxes along with critiques and what not donated by super awesome agents and editors. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Stonewall.
So here on Writability, I’ll have a special post up on June 7th with mini-interviews from Becky Albertalli (Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda), Suki Fleet (This is Not a Love Story), Abbie Rushton (Unspeakable), Nina Rossing (Supermassive), Ellen Wittlinger (Parrotfish) and Kirstin Cronn-Mills (Beautiful Music for Ugly Children) with the hidden anagram letters.
I’m really excited to be a part of this, and I hope you guys love it! See you all on the 7th. :)
UPDATE: Team Unicorn's anagram is hard, so I've decided to post early! Come back at noon TODAY (June 6th) to start the letter hunt! :)
