Neil Gaiman & BlackBerry Team Up for Storytelling Project

Novelist Neil Gaiman and BlackBerry have teamed up to create a storytelling project called A Calendar of Tales.

Gaiman will write a new tale for every month of the year, drawing inspiration and illustrations from his millions of online fans. The project will create “an amazing calendar showcasing your illustrations beside Neil’s stories.” We’ve embedded a video explanation above.

Here’s how to join the project: “Why is January so dangerous? Tweet your answer to Neil’s question and your thoughts could be the inspiration for his January story. Make sure you’re following BlackBerry so if you’re lucky enough to be chosen by Neil we’ll be able to contact you directly. If you’re not a follower, we won’t be able to use your tweet. Start sending Neil your tweets from 5pm GMT 4th February and get them in by 5pm GMT 6th February.”

Editor’s Note: An earlier version of this post mistakenly stated the length of the project.
