NewTree is running a search for the Great American Text Story. Grand prize is free chocolate for a year and an iPhone. From the contest website:
Tap into your imagination, flex your literary muscle – and don’t forget to stretch your thumbs. Simply submit your Great American Story, txt-style. Create your masterpiece of 1500 words (one text message at a time) and incorporate ALL 11 NEWTREE chocolate names: PLEASURE, VIGOR, RENEW, REFRESH, FORGIVENESS, SEXY, BLUSH, TRANQUILITY, COCOON, REJOICE and CRAVE.
My Japanese lit teacher last semester started off our class by sharing this story with us, about Japan’s latest best selling cellphone novels. I wonder what he’d think of this contest.
