Weekly Writes is a ten-week program designed to help you create original place-based writing.
For the first time ever, we’re offering both poetry AND prose, in two separate programs. What do you want to write this summer? Pick the program, sharpen your pencils, and get ready for a weekly dose of writing inspiration in your inbox!
WW Volume 3 kicks off on July 8, just in time to help you reach your summer writing goals! The deadline to sign up is July 7th, 2019.
The program costs just $1.50 per week. This fee includes one free, expedited* submission via Submittable after program completion. Prompts and advice are brand new for Volume 3, so Volume 1 or 2 participants will not encounter any repetition or old prompts.

Each week participants receive:
⇒ Three writing prompts appropriate for both beginning and advanced writers.
- For prose writers, two prompts each week will focus on generating new material and the third will guide participants through the process of writing a longer story.
- For poets, the three weekly prompts will be a mix: generative prompts for creating brand new work, and prompts to guide revision on previous compositions.
⇒ Examples and readings to accompany some prompts, which were directly inspired by content from our magazine.
⇒ A look behind-the-scenes from our editors, with advice about writing, revising, and submitting, in addition to insights into what they’re looking for when selecting work for The Common.
