Letter from the director, July 2018

Are you feeling the heat, writers?

How are you interpreting that phrase? Are you thinking about whether or not your air conditioner is working, or are you under pressure at work or even in your writing practice?

What does this photo make you think about? How does the literal and figurative heat connect you with the rest of the world, the rest of the universe?

Write about it in July. If you feel so inclined, email it as a submission…

Monthly photo prompt writing contest for email list subscribers!

If you aren’t currently enrolled in a Center course but want to write with us, we host a community-building photo prompt writing project through our email list.

Every first of the month, I will conclude my letter from the director with a photo. Using this photo as a prompt, our subscribers are invited to participate in our in-list writing challenge to see who can create a strong, detailed, feature-worthy response in under 500 words. (Subscribing gets you a FREE download of One Year of Weekly Writing Prompts, our Sunday emails brimming with tips and tricks for writers, the occasional exclusive discount or package deal on Center offerings, AND access to this friendly-fun “contest,” so what are you waiting for?)

Once you’re subscribed, get writing! Copy and paste your response to the photo prompt into an email and send it (subject line “[Month] photo prompt submission”) before noon on the last day of each month. The winning submission will be featured in the first Sunday email of the following month, published along with the next month’s photo prompt.

Remember, only email list subscribers can participate and will see each month’s selection, so sign up if you want to join us!

Happy writing,

Stacia M. Fleegal, Director
