That’s correct, fellow geeks, you’ve read the headline correctly. The FPGeeks Old-School, Write-In, Random Drawings continue for a fourth consecutive month and have we got a pen for you!
Ok, truth be told, we don’t actually have the pen just yet. As far as we can tell, no one outside of TWSBI Proper actually has a Mini. But credible information indicates that the TWSBI Mini will be released before the end of September. So we invite you to Win a Mini Before You Can Buy One!
And as we are often heard to say here at FPGeeks: But wait, there’s more!
We expect this write-in contest to be extremely popular. Generally speaking, the more entries we receive, the lower the odds become that any particular entry will be chosen at random. We’re hoping to combat that phenomenon with the following:
- If we receive 500 or more entries, we’ll give away TWO TWSBI Minis!
- If we receive 1000 or more entries, we’ll give away FOUR TWSBI Minis!
You’re still only allowed to enter the contest once, but with more entries equalling more prizes equalling more chances to win, you should encourage friends and family and coworkers and even complete strangers to enter!
The TWSBI Mini Fountain Pen GiveAway will be “old school.” To enter, just send us something handwritten via snail mail. It can be a letter, a postcard, a note, an ode, a haiku or even an epic novel scrawled in the margins of the Sunday newspaper. It can be anything at all so long as it is handwritten and provides us with a way to contact you should you win a pen.
Be sure to write the following somewhere on your entry:
TWSBI: Inspired by Writing
Send your entry to (NEW ADDRESS):
Fountain Pen Geeks
PO Box 728
Ankeny, IA 50021
All entries must be received by Saturday, September 29, 2012.
Only one entry per person, please.
The random draw to select the winner(s) will be conducted during the first live FPRadio broadcast in October.
You do not have to be watching the live broadcast in order to win.
This is, of course, an FPGeeks Contest Without Borders and is open to anyone and everyone, world-wide.
Should the TWSBI Mini not be released by the time the drawing for this contest takes place, any winner can opt for one of the following:
- Wait for the release of the TWSBI Mini.
- Opt instead for the immediate gratification of a TWSBI Diamond 540 in any color / nib width commonly available at the time of the win.
