We’d like to thank everyone who participated; we have quite the clever Twitter following and the tweets were all truly entertaining to read.

#IR22 Twitter Contest!


We currently have an outstanding Twitter following at 21K! We’ve decided to celebrate our Twitter friends (and hopefully make a few more) with a contest: 21K is a lot of followers but, like Taylor Swift, we’re “feeling 22.”

Channel your inner Taylor and tell us how you think iconic literary characters would finish this line: “I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling …” To enter this contest, find our tweet introducing this contest on our Twitter account @IndianaReview and  tweet us your most inventive responses. Make sure to hashtag the literary character you’re spoofing and then hashtag #IR22. Read others’ responses at your own discretion: there’s bound to be a few spoilers.

Example Tweets:

  • I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling like my father will hear about this. #DracoMalfoy #IR22
  • I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling like you’ve bewitched me body and soul. #MrDarcy #IR22
  • I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling like my friends are backstabbers. #Caesar #IR22

Our favorite responses will win an IR Prize Pack. Responses are due by Monday, June 27 by 12 PM EST. I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling pretty excited!

Good luck, and look out for our 1/2 K 2016 Prize that opens July 1st!
