Happy New Year!  I hope that you each have had a fortunate start to 2018.

I am writing as WSCA Newsletter and Social Media Editor to ask for your help.  Last year we initiated a social media campaign prior to our WSCA annual conference to share information and increase involvement.  Countdown to #WSCA2017 was successful in building excitement and preparation for the 2017 conference, and we will soon begin this campaign again for Countdown to #WSCA2018.

One of the most enjoyable parts of the countdown campaign is that WSCA members have the opportunity to win books written by other members.  Last year six members donated a trade or popular press book that they had written and, as Editor, I promoted the book through our newsletter, Facebook posts, and Instagram posts.  This is the only opportunity that members have for official WSCA promotion of their books, and it was a great privilege for me to be able to highlight the various awards or unique contributions for each book.  I heard personally from several of the people who won the books (many of them young scholars) that winning the book through the campaign enhanced their feeling of connection and camaraderie with others in the discipline.

Countdown to #WSCA2018 will launch in just a few weeks.  I’m calling all scholars who would be interested in donating their book to WSCA to have it widely promoted, and to have it awarded as a prize in our campaign.   Would you send me a copy of your book within the next three weeks?  You can send a copy you have on hand, or you are welcome to have it shipped through the publisher or third parties like Amazon so that you don’t even have to hit the post office!  The address for shipping is:

Please feel free to contact me at christina.yoshimura@umontana.edu with any question or additional ideas you might have for participation in Countdown to #WSCA2018, and thank you for your involvement in our association.
