red-nose4As Twestival approaches, another Twitter charity project appears in the rear view mirror – Tweetin’ hilarious.

In aid of Red Nose Day 2009 it is described as:

A new collection of comedy writing hopes to raise cash for Comic Relief – thanks to the micro-blogging site Twitter.

Journalists Linda Jones and Louise Bolotin are working on collecting and editing submissions for the TwitterTitters book by tweeting about it regularly.

Just one day after first mentioning the initiative on Twitter, they have found an illustrator and first submissions have been received. The deadline is Friday, February 20 at 4pm.

The resulting book will be published by self publishers Lulu.com, with all proceeds going to Comic Relief.

Short stories, scripts, poems and prose will all be accepted for the anthology and the word limit is 1,400 words. Copyright for the work is retained by the writer.

If you fancy yourself as a funnyman (or woman) get Tweeting. For more information, please contact Linda or Louise.
