We need your ideas….What would you do with an extra day?
We are inviting people to tweet their answer to the following question: What would you do with an extra day? Don’t forget to include the hashtag #24hourbook (and give us a heads up @STWevents). All ideas will be read by our writing teams and may inform the direction of the book.
Next we’ll be issuing a call for images to inspire the writers. Please join us on @STWevents, or ‘like’ our facebook page for more details about this, and how to get involved on the day….look out for info on where to get the book after the launch!
