Carnival of Pen, Pencil and Paper

The Carnival of Pen, Pencil and Paper is a traveling monthly collection of the best blog posts about notebooks, pens, pencils, paper products and anything else deemed relevant by the editors. The Carnival appears the first Tuesday of every month, starting August 4th, 2009. It will feature product reviews, photos of users’ collections, sketchbook art and doodles, and more!

Information about the carnival here and here. If you’re unfamiliar with blog carnivals, they’re a great way to build community and awareness among blogs that share similar subject matter. Bloggers and hosts can get more exposure for their posts, and readers enjoy an edited collection of posts and can discover new blogs they might not be aware of.

Submission guidelines:

Submit your post using this form no later than 5pm EST on the first Sunday of the month. Submissions must relate to the subject matter of the Carnival. One submission per blog per Carnival. All posts are included at the editor’s discretion and any considered inappropriate, off-topic, or of sub-par quality may be rejected.

All participants whose posts are selected for must post a link back to that edition of the Carnival within one week of its publication, also including a link to the Carnival home page at http://www.notebookstories.com/carnival-of-pen-and-paper/

The Carnival will rotate to different hosts. Contact the organizer at carnival@notebookstories.com if you would like to host a future carnival. Hosting will be restricted to active, on-topic blogs at the discretion of the organizer.
