[Author note, 09/25/13: SUBMISSIONS STILL OPEN! Everything you need to know about the #JudyBlumeProject, including contributions to date and GUIDELINES, can now be found on our webpage: http://www.westcoastposse.com/judyblumeproject.html
We are seeking MORE fantastic content from YOU, dear Blumers!! If you are a Judy Blume fan, if you love a Judy Blume fan, are a children's, MG or YA author, Librarian, Teacher, student or just have something delicious to say to the #JudyBlumeProject, then PLEASE, #JustWrite the damn thing!! And PLEASE, JOIN US in celebrating all that Judy Blume has meant to so many.]
My friend, Dana, of The Kitchen Witch, and I are in the flurry of promoting our Judy Blume Project Anthology CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS through Facebook and Twitter, and you may have received an e-mail about it.
If you're a blogger, YES, please post and promote your #JudyBlumeProject SUBMISSION, please LINK to the project page, and PLEASE attach the adorable BADGE, the HTML for which is available here on Dana's site -- scroll down a bit. It's also on the project page.
If you're on Facebook, you can LIKE the page, and follow along there, AND POST A LINK to your SUBMISSION!
You can check out how all this came about by reading Dana's original blog post, lamenting the announced retirement [from YA fiction only, and if she changes her mind, we'll be dancing in the streets!] celebrating the contribution of prolific and iconic author, Judy Blume, here. *Whew!*
And you can read Kim's original post on the topic here.
The Judy Blume Project aims to become an anthology of moments and memories of the many people upon whom Judy Blume had an impact growing up. Good or bad, touching or funny: WE WANT TO HEAR YOUR VOICES!! Write about what Judy Blume meant to you, either when you were navigating the turbulence of adolescence, or stories about your own kids (catch any of them reading <>em>Forever??). Don't be shy, and please don't feel like you have to be a writer to submit.

Dana and I both wish to extend thanks to the crazy (in a good way) people who havebeen so generous and supportive, including BlogHer Life and @TigerEyesMovie on Twitter (Please follow them!)-–because Judy is so very worth it.
