Here’s the Dirt on “Don’t Be a Dummy” Month!


We have great news! FYW has partnered with Wiley Publishing to give away one copy of a writing-related “For Dummies” book per week in October starting Monday, October, 5th!

Here are the specific titles we are giving away:

Week One (October 5th-9th)- Blogging for Dummies

Week Three-(October 19th-23rd) Copyediting & Proofreading for Dummies0471799521

Week Four (October 26th-30th)- Search Engine Optimization for Dummies

Here’s how this works:

We want to know the best writing tip you’ve ever received or the best writing lesson you’ve ever learned. Maybe it was something a professor told you or a lesson you had to learn the hard way. Whatever it is, we want to hear about it!

Since we will be giving away a different title each week, the contest will start at Midnight (CST) on the Monday of that week and run to 11:59pm (CST) Friday of that same week. Feel free to to enter as much as you want! This is NOT a random drawing, so make sure you’re sharing your best tips!

Winners will be chosen over the weekend and announced here every Monday starting October 12th so be sure to enter your real email address! Sorry, books can only be shipped to addresses in the US and Canada.
