FREE ‘Write More Good’ giveaway – just tell us your #jpeeve

Today, the “Bureau Chiefs” of @FakeAPStylebook fame released their phony yet astoundingly humorous writing guide, “Write More Good,” making them another go-to source for satirizing journalism.

SPJ’s Quill magazine recently featured an interview with @FakeAPStylebook founders Ken Lowery and Mark Hale. Read more on their inspirations, advice and what they have to say about Charlie Sheen coverage.

We want to get in on their action, too, so SPJ is offering you a chance to win a copy of “Write More Good!”

What’s the Contest?
We want to know your journalism pet peeve (or #jpeeve on Twitter). This is your chance to tell us what irks you most about the news. Is it blatant disregard for AP style? A bad pun or headline you’ve read? Your local anchor’s awful toupee? Something else?

How do I enter?
Tell us about your jpeeve in one of three places:

  1. Post your peeve here in the comments section
  2. Reply to our post on Facebook
  3. Write your jpeeve using the #jpeeve hashtag on Twitter

When does the giveaway end?
You have between now and Thursday, April 7 at 11:59 p.m. ET to submit a jpeeve.

Who will win the free copy of “Write More Good?”
Each person who submits a pet peeve will be placed in a drawing to select the recipient for the free copy of “Write More Good.” Limit one entry per person. (In other words, we encourage you to have fun and submit as many pet peeves as you wish, but you can only be entered in the drawing once.)

The winner will be announced and notified on Friday, April 8.

What are you waiting for?! What’s your jpeeve?
