Summer Solstice Scrawl Crawl 2011

June 21st.
Summer solstice, the longest day of the year.
Here in Frankfurt the sun rises at at 5:15 and sets at 21:39 (9:39 pm).
Dawn is at 4:30 and dusk at 10:24 pm.
(An aside--Gaisma is my favorite site for info like this. Iceland, where I lived for a couple years is light all night!! It was my favorite time of the year there.)

What is a Scrawl Crawl?
It's a day where writers and illustrators participate in an "event where individuals create something speedily drawn or written [scrawl] that is inspired by their creativity and observational powers as they go from place to place [crawl]."

SCBWI members in Europe will be exploring, creating and sharing with the theme Dawn to Dusk. (SCBWI members from other continents can register as roving-scrawl crawlers.)

We'll be posting on the ScrawlCrawl blogsite, sharing what we wrote or drew. Feel free to come visit us, or better yet, join us and be creative on Midsummer's day.
