I am extremely glad to announce that the ‘Jane Eyre Month’ is going to happen after all! Well, this post is for those of you, who have no idea what I’m talking about and also for those who wish to participate in the event.
❃ What is the 'Jane Eyre Month' exactly?
It will be similar to a Jane Eyre meme but it will last for slightly more than a whole month and every week there will be a different task for the people who decide to participate in the event. It’s a month dedicated exclusively to Jane Eyre -the book, the film and tv adaptations and everything else related to Jane Eyre.
❃ How can I participate?
You do not need to fulfill any requirements in order to participate. The participation in the event is very important for it to actually happen but at the same time absolutely optional. If you choose to participate in the event but later find that you don’t have the time or will to go on with it, you are free to quit. Those who participate will be requested to post or make things - such as gifs, graphics, screencaps, drawings or anything else - that are related to the weekly assignment. All you have to do is to take part in the weekly task by uploading your work on tumblr using the hashtag #janeeyremonth.
❃ Well, I’m not particularly artistic, may I participate somehow else?
The whole idea of the ‘Jane Eyre Month’ is to share your own experience and opinions with people who share the same interest as you, whether one is referring to the book or movie, and not to highlight the most talented participants or anything like that. Therefore, it is not necessary that you actually make something. You can write a text -small or large- as well. This event will be organized in order to praise any form of creativity and writing is a very creative way of expressing yourself as well, don’t you think?
❃ Which will the weekly assignments be?
▸ Week one (December 1st-7th): favourite female character
▸ Week two: (December 8th-14th): favourite male character
▸ Week three: (December 15th-21st): favourite relationship
▸ Week four: (December 22nd-28th): three favourite quotes
▸ Week five: (December 29th-January 4th): five favourite scenes
▸ [optional] Week six: (January 5th-11th): favourite film or tv adaptation
note; if you are going to participate in the event you must follow the dates and assignments above. It is perfectly okay if you post something delayed, however please do not post any of the tasks earlier, as in before it’s week arrives. I am only announcing the assignments so early, so that the people who would like to participate can be ready and make / write the tasks in advance.
The official blog is the janeeyremonth but this event is organized by fuckyeahjaneeyre. All works of those who will participate in the ‘Jane Eyre Month’ will be reblogged to both blogs, provided that they are tagged with #janeeyremonth. You can follow these blogs for updates on the event. Also, if you have any questions, you can send them to any of the two blogs mentioned above. I’d be happy to answer them.
