Join the #30DaysofSummer Writing Challenge!
Following the success of the January & April Write-Offs, the 30 Day Writing Challenge returns next month with a series of fun summer and sun-themed prompts to spark your imagination and get you writing every day during August 2019.
how does it work?
Sign up to the 30 Day Challenge and each day you’ll receive an email with:
a daily writing prompt,
ideas on how to tackle the prompt,
And in the Summer Challenge Facebook group, you can:
share your response to each day’s prompt,
receive personal feedback from me during the first week,
receive oodles of support and encouragement from me and the rest of the group during the Challenge.
It’s the perfect way to establish or maintain a regular writing practice this summer!
what can i expect?
All you have to do is set aside 15 minutes each day and free-write around that day’s prompt to find your way into a poem or story. The inspiration comes in the form of poems but feel free to write in whatever genre you prefer. The challenge isn’t about producing finished work but about playing with ideas and trying something new.
Over 120 writers from around the world joined the January Write Off, with 40-45 actively posting and commenting every day. It was great fun but a little bit hectic so this time numbers are limited for better interaction and a small fee (€15) applied to keep the lurkers at bay.
The group is a super-supportive environment — for each prompt you can post a poem, a story fragment or just an update on how you’re getting on. The emphasis is on providing encouraging feedback that is constructive to your work at the first draft stage.
By the end of the month, you’ll be writing regularly, have a bunch of new first drafts and an overwhelming sense of achievement!
