A few results of our ‘What’s another word for AUTHOR?’ competition

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

On our blog (Friday 23rd March) we posted a competition to come up with another word or phrase to denote the term AUTHOR. We’ve had some lovely entries including these favourites below:

A life injector of paper
Samantha Wesley, Blandford (our runner-up)

Ink Wizard
Stacey Corrin, Tiverton

Imagination in Use
Steph Meakin, Derby

Wordician
Kelly Hooper, Huntingdon

Articulate, Ultra-Talented, Honorary, Outstanding, Recreation-er
Aishah Waheed, Ashton-Under-Lyne

Dreammaker
Georgina Ball, Ely

and, quite frankly, I think we should petition to have these new terms officially added to the Thesaurus. It was a tough call choosing the winner, but the overriding favourite was:

Big Chief Quill
Christine Johnson, Kendal

In fact, I think I might refer to our authors this way in future. Might throw in a ‘Kemosabe’ once in a while for good measure.

As promised, our winner will receive a signed copy of The War of the Dragon Lady, by John Wilcox. Congrats Christine, and thanks to all who joined in this bit of fun!

Chiara Priorelli, Publicity & Online Marketing Manager

(P.S. And yes, I do realised today is the 2nd April, not the 1st and April Fool’s day as I mistakenly wrote in that previous blog. The fool is me.)

    Shakespeare's Ghost by Mary Hoffman

    Kelly: Picked this up in Stratford-upon-Avon at the weekend. This ode to Shakespeare sees Faelinn, a faerie princess, try to lure Ned, an actor with the King’s Men, over to live with her on the Other Side. But since only Ned and William Shakespeare himself can see these creatures, can they be trusted?
