Launch Day Contest Winner Announced

Good morning!

Yesterday, our launch day, was absolutely amazing. A big thank you to all who visited our new magazine, commented, tweeted, shared and liked. I can already see that a wonderfully supportive creative nonfiction community is being created. (Who knew that the launch would also fall on such a historically significant day?)

As part of our launch day celebration, we held an Amazon.com gift card giveaway. We kept track of interactions all day, recording them by number. We then used a random number generator to select a winner. Drum roll, please!

The winner is #114!

OK, OK. We’re keeping you in more suspense. The 114th person to comment was:

Beth Lowe

Beth had a few entries, but her winning entry, I had notated on the tracking sheet, was her comment on “The Rabbit Hole.” Beth will be emailed a $100 gift card to Amazon.

Congratulations, Beth!

This is not the last contest. We’ll have more fun and games for readers as the months progress; but, now our focus shifts to awarding one contributor the “Most Memorable” award for May 2011. So, please continue to engage with our magazine and help your favorite contributor (or yourself, if you’re in this issue!) win this designation.

Thanks for reading!

    Congratulations, Beth!!! What’s on your wish list? 😀

  • Thank you so very much! I’m totally thrilled. Even without winning the contest though, I would be congratulating Hippocampus magazine on a truly fine launch issue. I’m looking forward to many more. (I dm’d my email address to you on twitter. Thank you again. What fun I’ll have with my gift card!)
