Calling all Nerdfighters Librarians!

treacheroussparks:

I was just wondering how many public libraries have nerdfighter clubs? I really want begin a nerdfighter club in one of the public libraries where I work, but as I’m a fairly new employee, and busy with school, I’m nervous to bring it up to my director. Any advice, tips, experiences, or opinions? Nerdfighters who frequent libraries! Would you regularly attend like a monthly Nerdfighter meeting at your local library? If so how old are you?

Help a library person out!

Hello there, artists of nerdfighteria! After the success of the Nerdfighter Art Tier of last year’s Project for Awesome, I’m teaming up with the P4A team once again and need your help!
The P4A, as always, will be raising money to give to charities. However, some people have more time and talent to give than money (you know who you are) so we’d like to recruit you to provide creations for reward tiers in our IndieGoGo campaign. You create the artwork and it will be and sent to a fellow nerdfighter who claims the perk!
Ideally, you will be making 15+ items and you will be shipping them to Missoula, Montana to be distributed to the people who claimed the Nerdfighter Art Perk!
We’re looking for small, easily shipped items. This can include jewelry, knitwear, small plushies, small drawings and paintings, digital art prints, etc.
The pieces of art do not need to be nerdfighter-themed but it is highly encouraged! 
The estimated worth of the art should be about $25-30 because the perk will be sold for $40. That’s not a strict amount, just keep it in mind when making your proposals!
If you’re interested, you need to email us at nerdfighterart@gmail.com by October 10th with an example of what you have/will be creating and what quantity. A picture of it for us to see would be extra helpful when sorting through everyone’s submissions!
We will let you know if it’s reasonable and provide additional information around October 13th, giving you more than a month to complete your pieces.
We’re extremely excited to be working on this project again this year, we hope you’re excited too! ^-^
- Emma, Valerie, and Hank

Project for Awesome Nerdfighter Music Compilation!

Hey nerdfighters. As you know, the Project for Awesome is coming up (on December 17th!) and we at vlogbrothers headquarters are working very hard to make sure this year’s P4A is a great one.

This year, we would like to include a new kind of perk, kind of like the Nerdfighter Art perk, but with music!

We are looking for any and all songs by nerdfighters, about nerdfighteria. These songs will be collected and formatted into a compilation album (or compilation albumS, depending on how many submissions come in) that will be available for purchase as a downloadable perk as part of the Project for Awesome Indiegogo campaign. Money will be raised for charity. People will be able to acquire lots of great nerdfighter music. Super cool stuff.

Read on for submission guidelines and the like.

  • All songs must be either about nerdfighteria, about any/all of John’s books, or covers of Hank’s songs.
  • Artist name & song title must be included with your submission. You may also include a link to your music on the web (bandcamp, itunes, etc), and any other text about the song you like.
  • Songs must be submitted in as high a quality as possible; lossless files (AIFF, WAV) are preferred.
  • Submit all songs via wetransfer to valerie@nerdfighteria.com with “P4A MUSIC” included somewhere in the message.
  • Submissions will be accepted until November 1st, 2014.
  • Multiple submissions are very much allowed, but please send them in one at a time!
  • We will reach out to those whose songs are selected for the compilation to confirm their inclusion no later than December 1st.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me at valerie@nerdfighteria.com. We’re very excited to listen to all the lovely things you make!

DFTBA

Cara Delevingne will play Margo Roth Spiegelman in the Paper Towns movie. 
Like everyone involved in the film, I was blown away by her audition. She really, really, really gets Margo.

More Paper Towns movie news! How weird is it that this movie will be a THING in THEATERS in less than a YEAR?
