WHO: see below

WHEN: see below

WHERE: see below

HOW: see below

We can't start, send letters, or do anything until we get MichaelM's approval.

Way off of what you are talking about, but we should all chip in and help get this Writing to Eoin Colfer thing orgainized. MichaelM's gotta be overloaded, one person could be a stalker and find out how to mail them, another person could collect the letters into one big folder, and another could do the actual mailing.

We need to get MM's approval first. So he needs to look at this topic. Maybe if I type really loud he'll hear.
HEY! LOOK OVER HERE! READ THIS TOPIC! HELLOOO! WE NEED YOUR APPROVAL!

Great idea BlackOpal. We should start doing something about this. But you guys have said Michael has to see this first.

Alright...
  • MMK [I just realized that we have 3 MMs here XD] volunteered to do the letter collecting, </li>
  • The mailing address is found in FG's <a href='http://artemisfowl.fangathering.com/books_eoin_colfer.html' target='_blank'>Eoin Colfer</a> page:
    <span style='font-size:6pt;line-height:100%'> <div align=center>
    'Eoin Colfer'
    c/o Puffin PublicityM
    80 Strand
    London
    WC2R 0RL

    </div></span>
    </li>
  • And so we just need someone who's willing to mail it.</li>
I am very willing to mail it, if nobody else volunteers. :) I have to say that it would be more efficient if one of our UK friends did. XD But anyway, I'm willing.

I'm willing to too. I looked up write to Eoin Colfer on Google, and this thread came up :D. Start writing then! After we get MM's permission, of course.

Wow! FG is just awesome. :P

Anyway, after Michael sees this, let's set up a timetable to get things done. ^_^

Oh, and I think it's a very good idea to pin this thread now. :P

Woo! Well, is there going to be a deadline for letters to be in? And are we going to read them just in case of inapropriate content? And who's going to write the opening letter that introduces Fangathering and explains the purpose of the package? And I'm getting ahead of myself, aren't I?

Hehe, no you're not.. You're just excited. Like I am right now! XD

Haha!

Anyway MM could do a write-up about FG because he knows it best...

And then let's borrow the little FG icon and turn it into this letterhead design... That would be awesome! :jump:

That would be amazing! We should make a coat of arms to put in the corner. Haha, I wonder what that would look like. We'd probably have to stick SMG in there, just to appease our mighty leader. I'm so tired none of this makes sense. But anyway... wait, I'm done.

:focl:

I wonder if Eoin Colfer watches Buffy? :unsure:

I could make a letterhead design with FG and SMG in it... Kidding! XD

We're not making sense anymore. XD

Ok, we just have to wait for, as you said, our mighty leader.

lmao - You guys rock. I have a big exam on Wednesday, so Im loving any help I can get right now! :lol:

What yous have said sounds great tbh. I'd like to do the letter collecting and mailing though (Sorry, but this will be done in FG's name, and my conscience just couldn't take it, unless I had read through every letter in person, to make sure nothing inappropriate was sent to Colfer, and I dont want anyone else to have to put a penny towards this. XD )

And I'm the only one who wouldn't have to mail it overseas, so it would be cheapest for me anyways. :P


I really like the idea of a letter-head though. Perhaps we could have that built first (eg. a Word Document template, or a PDF?) that people could download if they wanted, to see how their letter would look? Or they could just type letters directly onto the forum, and I'd put them in the template, and print them. And I can print as much colour as we need, so we could make it look really nice? You still up for designing one darvit? ^_^ (As much as Id love SMG in it though, its ok, you dont have to have her :P )

And BlackOpal - A deadline would be needed, yep. Any thoughts on how long?


Once we have these few details sorted out, we can make a new thread for entries (This one has gotten really messy XD ), Ill announce it on the FG main page, and email all the forum members as well. ^_^

And once it is up, everyone tell all their friends about this. The more letters the better! Colfer should know hes appreciated. :P

And last of all, a huge thanks to Darvit, BlackOpal and MMK! Yous rock for getting this all started. :P
