Welcome to International Fake Journal Month 2013!

What is IFJM?
Please read the page "What Is IFJM" for details.
Learn the difference between Faux, Fake, and Fake Historical Journals.

Contests for 2017
Currently there are no contests planned for 2017. Check the side bar "Contests for 2017" to see if this changes.

Participants who Post Their Journals
A list of 2017 participants who are posting their fake journals this year will appear near the top of the right side bar of this blog around April 5. Lists of participants who posted their pages in 2010 through 2016 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.

Read an explanation of Roz's insanely complex 2011 fake journal.

No Event Promotion Contest in 2012

Left: Blog margin notice button. See below for details.

In past public celebrations for International Fake Journal Month everyone promoting the blog by posting the image at the left in his or her own blog's margin column would be entered into a prize drawing.

This year, in an effort to cut back on administration duties (keeping track of the promoters and visiting their sites to check) I have phased this portion of the celebrations out.

Support of non-participants has been a huge part of helping the public form of IFJM grow.  I may bring this portion of the contests back next year, depending on my own schedule at the time.

In the meantime I want to thank past promoters again for helping get the word out. 

If you are a blogger who likes to include links to the various projects you are involved in as standing notices in the margin column of your blog, I still invite you to use the above margin image to promote the event and your participation on your blog.

If you would like to promote International Fake Journal Month on your blog you can follow this link to instructions on how to use this margin image. The only change to the instructions is that you don't have to go to Roz Wound Up to retrieve the image as I have positioned it here for you. Steps 5 through 7 are no longer active, since there is no contest for promotion this year. You do however have my gratitude for supporting this event and helping to get the word out.
