A highly esteemed and highly secret jury of three persons is committed to choosing the most purple of the purplish prose submitted in the various categories.
We warmly anticipate honouring an overall victor, plus winners in the six categories listed above. Also, if Lord Bulwer’s spirit so moves, the jury could finger runners-up for the overall win, or in any or all of the categories.
Join us! We need ticket salespersons for the awards dinner. We need servers at the awards dinner. We need costumes from the 1800s for the awards dinner personnel. We need creators of the trophies… the pittances.
The awards dinner will be a festive country supper at the Bulwer Community Centre on Saturday, May 2, 2015 – a dark night, preferably not stormy! (Proceeds go to support the Bulwer Community Centre.)
Awards Dinner Venue
The Bulwer Community Centre, 254 Jordan Hill Road, Bulwer, Quebec.
Awards Dinner Itself
Genuine and native Bulwerians who remember how Bulwer got its name will prepare a Purple Prose Dinner to delight the palette. Proceeds go 100% to support the ancient and stalwart Bulwer Community Centre, which provides the venue and the supper. Shades of 1800s, complete with costume…
The Bulwer Purple Prose Project volunteer organizing committee includes Mead Baldwin, W. Lynn Dillabough, Rachel Garber, Janice LaDuke, Linda Morra, Carole Martignacco, Judy Palmer, Peggy Roy, and Tami Spires. Purple is our favourite prose. You can reach us at BulwerPPP@gmail.com.
A Hearty Nod
We gratefully acknowledge the granddaddy of all Lord Bulwer fiction contests (www.bulwer-lytton.com out of Lytton, BC) from which the Bulwer Purple Prose Project is frankly derivative. Our only claim to originality is our very own Bulwer, Quebec, which, we believe, confers on the Bulwer PPP a special legitimacy.
