2019 LOCATIONS, A TO Z
Date: 09/01/19 - 08/31/20

Commercial Photography

Our next A to Z challenge will focus on locations.

To complete the challenge, read a book that is set in a location that begins with a letter of the alphabet, working your way from A through Z.

For those difficult letters - Q, X, Y and Z - the letter need only appear in the location name somewhere. It does not need to be the first letter.

Locations can be real or fictional.

The challenge begins September 1, 2019 and ends August 31, 2020.
