Introducing “Caption Me Thursday” (& Win a Prize)

Categories: Brian Klems' The Writer's Dig, Picture Prompts Tags: Brian Klems, caption me, online editor blog.

What’s your caption for this photo?

I like to snap random photos of things I find amusing. I’ve been trying to find some use for them and I think I finally have it: Introducing “Caption Me Thursday,” a new weekly event on this blog where I post an odd photo and you give it a caption. How it works:

  • Each Thursday I’ll post a photo here on this blog.
  • You come up with a clever caption and post it in the comments section.
  • Best caption (picked by me or a celebrity guest judge) will be announced in my free Writer’s Digest eNewsletter, which comes out the following Tuesday.

Also, because this is the inaugural Caption Me Thursday post, I’m going to give away a free copy of Writing Basics to my favorite caption.

Good luck everyone! Can’t wait to read the captions.

WINNERS ANNOUNCED

It’s with pleasure that I announce the winners of the Inaugural “Caption Me Thursday.” They are:

travisb7 — “Not only had she been a good wife, but Sara was recyclable, too!”
bjamison71 — “You’re throwing your wife away!”

Thanks again to everyone who participated and look for more of these in the future.

    Hi Brian–is there a reason my previous comment / submission for the caption contest was not approved?

    • The reason: I was in meetings yesterday and unable to approve until this morning, as I have to do all of them manually. I try to go in a few times a day to approve, but some days I’m unable to.

      So never worry. The comment will always eventually be approved, even if it takes me a little time to get to it.
