Feel free to share your piece here as a comment to this post! Just remember that, because we welcome writers of all ages and genres, we’ve agreed that our shared work will be suitable for general audiences.
Join us for a holiday party and open mic to celebrate the season and WOTA! We’ll meet from 6:oo to 8:00 pm in room 301 of Musser Public Library on Tuesday, December 21. Wear your favorite festive attire–holiday hats and ugly sweaters encouraged–and feel free to bring snacks or drinks to share. Be prepared to sing carols as well as sharing short works. WOTA books will be available for sale if you need to tick items off that gift list!
Write a piece (100-1000 words) on a myth or legend from your life. It can be something you grew up with, something you discovered later in life, something you’ve always been guided or intrigued or haunted by, something entirely invented from your own pure brain, or something you share with others in a culture, a region, the world. Any and all myths are fair game, but we want to hear about the ones that obsess you. Bring a copy to the September meeting and/or post as comment here to share with others!
Has the soggy spring bogged down your muse? Are you looking for a prompt to get your writing for the day? Has it been a while since you challenged yourself to write something new and you’re just looking for a place to start?
WOTA is happy to bring you June’s writing challenge–to compose a short piece of any length, style, genre, or subject matter using the following words:
Bring your piece to the June meeting (details coming soon), post on our Facebook page, or share your work here and inspire others!
In our giddiness at being able to meet again in person, if distanced and masked, participants at the April WOTA meeting reinstated the writing challenge. Ready?
The challenge: use these 10 words to write a short piece in any style of your choosing–flash fiction, micro essay, poem, song, screenplay, hybrid, what have you. Post your piece below or in the Facebook group, and bring copies to the May meeting to share!
The 9 adjectives are: PRISTINE, FROLICSOME, TALL, CORUSCATED, WHITE, HARMONIOUS, REBELLIOUS, INTERESTING, and CONFUSING.
