Make the most of Mr. Shatner’s Birthday Month!
Join in the fun and submit your favorite Shatism into the B’day Month Competition
And at the end of the special celebration month the Man himself will pick his favorite from the Shatisms on Shatoetry.com’s “Top Shatisms” page… and give a personal shoutout tweet to the Shatoetist that authored the one he likes the most!
The announcement is being made on April Fool’s Day but it’s not a joke!
Just follow these simple steps:
1. Create the most amazing Shatism you possibly can (take your time, you’ve got all month!)
2. Upload it to YouTube (following the Share prompts in the Shatoetry app. Feel free to name your Shatism and give it a description… just don’t change the Tags)
Yes, it’s that simple!
The most popular Shatisms on YouTube are automatically fed into the “Top Shatisms” page on Shatoetry.com.
