Looking for a Prompt?

We at WordWrites Guild are an eclectic mix of folks – teachers, painters, drivers, students, grandparents, musicians, engineers – all Jacks and Jills of many trades! In an effort to bring fresh creativity into our writing, from time to time we will be using photographs, music, and more for our twice-monthly writing prompts.

We are excited about the following image and can’t wait to hear what everyone comes up with for the August 24th at the Lawrenceburg Public Library at 6:00pm when they share their writing inspired by:

buildings-1851047_1920

Have fun – with 500 words, or fewer!

IMPORTANT NOTE — Although the next WWG meeting will be held at the normal 6:00pm time, at the normal North Dearborn Public Library location, on the normal second Thursday of the month, due to members’ availability, this prompt will be shared at the later August meeting, as stated correctly above.

 

Grab an Umbrella, Don the Galoshes!

This soggy prompt might open up a watershed of ideas:

The bus shelter in the rain

Of course you know the routine – just write whatever you’d like using the prompt as inspiration, but limiting your masterpiece to 500 words or fewer.

Our next WordWrites Guild meeting will be held at the Lawrenceburg Public Library at 6:00pm on Thursday, June 22nd – rain or shine!

On the Brink of May Flowers

It’s almost here – the annual transformation of April showers into May flowers. On April 27th, you are invited to join WordWrites Guild for a stroll through the garden of language, into the arbor of prose, while listening to the fountain of dialogue – all at the Lawrenceburg Public Library.

This meeting’s prompt asks what can you come up with that includes all of the following – using no more than 500 words?

A can of Easy Cheese
The way she made tea
To be the great seducer

 

And there you have it – perhaps not the tranquil path, or the floral bouquet of words you might have anticipated, but an interesting prompt – and one that engourages the ideas in your head to grow like weeds!

Enjoy the view …

Prompt with a Side of Research

Leave a comment

This latest writing prompt might be a tad more challenging than some of our previous posts have been, so get ready to crack open the books, warm up the search engine and put the library reference desk on speed-dial.

In 500 words or less, write a little something that includes the following:

WHO – A Master Builder

WHAT – Evaluate

WHEN – Tenth Century

WHERE – Tibet

The next meeting of the WordWrites Guild is scheduled for Thursday, February 23rd at the Lawrenceburg Public Library at 6:00PM. All writers are encouraged to take part in the discussions, critiques, and sharing of creative work that are integral to every meeting.

A New Season and A New Schedule

Autumn,  1893    Artist: Harry Siddons Mowbray, American, born Egypt, 1858 – 1928

 

Change is in the air. We wrap it around our bare shoulders on chilly evenings, and we taste it when we bite into hard, cold, just-picked apples. We smell it in smoke-infused breezes and we see it along woodland paths of rust and gold.

This season of change is a fitting time for the WordWrites Guild to announce a new schedule and an invigorating event. As you may already know, tomorrow’s meeting marks the beginning of the new WWG meeting schedule:

Every SECOND Thursday of the month,

we will meet at North Dearborn Branch Library

 

Every FOURTH Thursday of the month,

we will meet at the Lawrenceburg Public Library

 

Our meeting times remain the same – from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM, and the premise of the group is unchanged; that is, to offer encouragement, support, and respectful critique to every writer who joins our friendly group to share a love of writing with fellow word-wranglers.

1933.447, 5919
Wooden Writing Tool  ca. 323 B.C.-A.D. 256

 

 

In keeping with our open-door approach to membership and our commitment to the community, WordWrites Guild is hosting the first annual Writers’ Festival on Thursday, October 27th in the Ewbank Room of the Lawrenceburg Public Library.

This free event is open to the public from 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM, and offers everyone an opportunity to meet a variety of writers, illustrators, and more. Along with refreshments, there will be a Book Title Scavenger Hunt, a Community Build-a-Book, and terrific door prizes (including a special prize for anyone bringing in our display ad from the Beacon newspaper).

If you, or someone you know, would like to reserve a space (completely free of any fees or charges) to showcase and sell your published books, or if you might like to volunteer for the evening, please contact us – we’d love to hear from you.

Please be sure to join us for this inaugural event, and feel free to bring family and friends – it is only with your attendance that the evening will be a success. Thank you for your interest, your support and your enthusiasm.

Fanfare, Flags and Fireworks!

In just a few days, the skies will be ablaze

with shimmering red, white and blue as

America celebrates another birthday.

 

The WordWrites Guild will not meet on July 3rd

 

in order to have ample time to pack a picnic,

unfurl the beach towels and

sing along with the fife and drum!

 

Please note that

WordWrites Guild will meet again on

JULY 17th at the Lawrenceburg Public Library

6:00pm – 8:00pm

 

We will critique any submissions received through

July 10th at that time.

 

Have a water-safe, fireworks-savvy, and

Wonderful Fourth of July!
