Join Us for Weekly Writes, Volume I

weekly writes

 

Weekly Writes is a ten-week program designed to help you create original place-based fiction and nonfiction.

Volume I launched on July 1, 2018. Volume II coming soon!

Sign up for Volume 1 is now closed. The $15 fee includes one free, expedited submission after program completion.

Each week participants receive:
  • Three writing prompts appropriate for both beginning and advanced writers. Two of these prompts will focus on generating new material and the third will guide you through the process of writing one longer short story.
  • Examples that accompany the prompts, which were directly inspired by content from our magazine.
  • Weekly writing advice from our editors and insights into what they’re looking for when selecting work for The Common.

 

After the completion of this program, you’ll have three months to send us your work for free, and we’ll send you a decision within one month. We look forward to reading what you produce.

The long curtain opens and I follow.
I lose myself in the exacting rain.
It trickles down scarred blocks of stone.
The church a storage facility for arms.
Sun sears the graffiti.
Bunkers squat unmarked...
