Dear Words for Joy group members,
In case you missed our last announcement, we are writing you once again to share some exciting news regarding the future of our group writing communities at Write the World! In order to make sure you get the most out of Write the World sub-groups, we will be retiring existing groups and launching new groups-- called Writers' Rooms-- on a rotating schedule, each lasting six weeks.
Writers' Rooms will consist of weekly writing prompts that carry you through the progression of the writing process, from imagining potential topics to honing your final piece with an eye towards publication. Prompts will build upon one another, though you can also join at any time and respond to those that call to you. We will focus on commenting, peer reviewing, and building community as we take an in-depth look at a variety of genres and elements of craft, read accompanying resources, and dig more deeply into the writing process. Our first group, Writing for the News
, will launch on March 1. We encourage you to join the group now
and respond to the first prompt, “Meet & Greet,”
so you’re ready to go when March arrives!
We will no longer be posting new writing prompts to Words for Joy. You WILL still be able to view your past writing once this group is retired; however, you WILL NOT have access to peer reviews, expert reviews, or prompts. Please download/copy any materials you wish to save by February 25th. We will retire current sub-groups on February 28th. This is the last announcement that you'll receive in this group, but we look forward to continuing our work with you through Writers' Rooms!
Please feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns about this transition. We look forward to engaging with you all in our new group communities, which will allow us to work together to hone our craft, connect with other writers, learn about language, and… most of all… have fun!
