Teen Ink Movie Review Contest – Twilight

Actor Robert Pattinson appeared recently at Orland Square Mall south of Chicago.  Read about his adventures in this article.

Here’s another story about fans  who were turned away from the event.

Would you have waited overnight for a chance to meet Pattinson?  Would you be upset if you were turned away?

The Twilight movie opens nationwide on November 21. 

If you’re planning to see it anyway, then why not write a review?  From Betsy, at Teen Ink Magazine:

Hey all:

We’re holding a “Twilight” movie review contest, and we want you to participate whether you’re a lover or a hater! The writer of the best review (positive or negative) will receive their choice of a Twilight companion book or a Teen Ink book. You’ll also receive a year’s subscription to Teen Ink Magazine, and your review will be seriously considered for publication!

-Betsy

The contest deadline is December 1st.  Post your review (positive or negative) on Facebook, or email it to betsy (at) teenink.com.

Author Stephenie Meyer has been planning to publish a fifth book in her Twilight saga that would explore the events of the series from Edward’s point of view.  After several unfinished chapters from that manuscript were leaked online, however, Meyer announced that Midnight Sun has been put on hold indefinitely.

Is the series really done for good?  Will Meyer change her mind?  Is this just a clever marketing ploy?

Read Meyer’s announcement on her website.

Take a look at the petition some of Meyer’s fans have started.
