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.

2016 International Fake Journal Month Begins Today

I am wishing every 2016 participant the best of luck as you begin your project today. I hope that you have fun, that you push yourself, that you learn a ton, and that you gain insights that you can use in your regular journaling and creative life.

Remember to let me know if you want to be in the Facebook group in order to share your images. Or if you are sharing your images publicly on a dedicated blog or Flickr or a website send me a direct line after you have five entries up and I'll add you to the Participants list in the right-hand column.

Have a great celebration.
