The 2020 Classic Literature On Film Blogathon will be here in a week’s time and being my first blogathon as a host, I’m excited!
There’s been an incredible response and the choices made by contributors has been nothing short of inspirational. In these difficult days ahead, hopefully we are all inspired to be creative and support those who are being creative.
As the blogathon runs over the three days from April 3rd to April 5th, I will post the contributions over those three days, with a final wrap up on April 6th.
Please don’t hesitate to share with or suggest others who would be interested in taking part – the more, the merrier. Even if someone does not have a blog, I’ll be happy to take that person’s work and make it part of this event. The sharing of the blogathon posters on your social media would be greatly appreciated as well!
