Join in on the #MicroReview fun to win great prizes!

Can you review a book in 140 characters or less? Succinct, silly and sometimes savage, the #MicroReview competition returns to MWF again in 2017.

Between Saturday 26 August and Sunday 3 September, Melbourne Writers Festival and Moleskine are inviting you to post a MicroReview of a book on Twitter using the #MicroReview hashtag.

Tweet of the Day will be selected every day of the MicroReview project.  The author of the most creative, original #MicroReview contribution will receive an exclusive pack of 3 Melbourne Writers Festival 2017 Moleskine notebooks.

All qualifying tweets must be 140 characters or less in length and contain the #MicroReview hashtag. The Tweet of the Day will be posted on our website. Winners will be notified through Twitter via Direct Message.


Here are some examples…

The Odyssey. Husband has overly elaborate excuse for coming home late. #MicroReview #MWF17
