Wish Shakespeare Happy Birthday!

  • Share on Tumblr

We’re getting ready to celebrate Shakespeare’s Birthday. Last year 99 bloggers were involved in this project by writing posts or recording videos on how Shakespeare has impacted their life or by recalling a special Shakespeare memory. How has Shakespeare made a difference to your life? What memories do your earliest encounters with Shakespeare evoke?

We would love to have more people involved this year. If you don’t have a blog not to worry you can still participate by recording a video and uploading it to youtube or by recording an audio post on audioboo.

To be involved all you need to do is to enter your name, a photo, your twitter name, etc. here so we can add you to the site. You can publish your post anytime between April 23rd and April 30th.

Thank you if you have already signed up to participate in Happy Birthday Shakespeare 2012!

And here is my own contribution by way of an audiboo (I don’t have my own blog) in which I talk about some of my earliest encounters with Shakespeare.
