Call for Writers - Women's History

Post by Irreligion in Bangladesh » Sun Jun 24, 2018 5:18 pm

2018 IHO's "You Pick, We Write" event, where the players vote on a topic, is Women's History! I'm looking for writers to contribute question(s) for this project; we need 108 tossups total, and my strong preference is to have ~a dozen writers contribute 8-10 questions. My goal for the set is to break some new ground and tell interesting stories that might not have been told in tossup form before.

I'd like to start with a discussion session in Discord to plan out the vision for the set; this is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday night, but I'll wait until we actually have writers and an idea of what time works for people.

If you're interested in writing for this, send me a private message here or an e-mail (brad@historybowl.com). Thanks!

I've gotten a few e-mails of interest, and will be responding to all at once sometime tomorrow; there's still time to reach out if you're interested.
