Contests for 2018 Currently there are no contests planned for 2018. Check the side bar "Contests for 2017" to see if this changes.
Participants who Post Their Journals A list of 2018 participants who are posting their fake journals this year will appear near the top of the right side bar of this blog around April 6. Lists of participants who posted their pages in 2010 through 2017 appear lower in the same column. Please pay them a visit and check out their fake journals.
View a Couple of Roz's Past Fake Journals Roz's 2009 fake journal takes place in an alternate Twin Cites, where disease has killed the human and bird populations. (It ends up being an upbeat tale of friendship.) Watch a video flip through of Roz's 2009 fake journal here.

More International Fake Journal Month Participants and the Seventh Entry in Roz's 2010 Fake Journal
Left: the seventh entry in my 2010 fake journal. Click on the image to view an enlargement.
Here is an update on participants in this year's fake journal celebration. I have provided the name of the artist and then a short note about the fake journal. If you click on the name a link will take you there.
Gina Mitsdarfer (Gina shows us Santa Fe interior designer, Syndey Greene's journal.)
Margaret Sloan (Her journal keeper is off on a trip to an unusual land—Divergencia—where there are snail trains and cloud cows.)
Jana Bouc (Jana shares a book of spells and unspells—useful for all sorts of things! This is Jana's second year participating in IFJM.)
Ky Sanders (A young boy, Danny, begins a life changing journey.)
I'm going to make a sidebar feature with links to participant's postings on their own blogs. You can also click on "2010 participants" under categories and get to the related posts which list them.
Again, I'd like to encourage you all to jump in and start a fake journal if you haven't already done so. And of course, visit the blogs of those people who are posting their efforts!

This year, 2018, we will be having a contest. This will happen sometime after April ends. It will be a quiz, the questions and scope are yet to be determined. Please follow the blog for more details when known. (There is a fun, small, but extremely useful prize.)
