The momentum continues with the launch of our second writeathon, the Superstition Writeathon Event! Wednesday, September 13, 12 to 4 pm EST! This session, we will focus on the theme of superstition, writing about uncanny objects, beliefs, and the ways we invest the world around us with meaning.
Realtime, online, and asynchronous: you will work independently, while connecting in a private Facebook group. Those who can’t join in real time will have a week to participate at their convenience.
Meg & Lorette’s writeathons will be a monthly happening, where writers work and play, flexing their creativity with prompts and possibilities designed to eliminate the blank page. Dedicate four hours to writing, leaving your usual routines and censors at the door. Experiment, explore, and come away with a library of eight drafts to develop and revise later.
There will be ekphrastic prompts from the world of art, vintage photography prompts, Meg’s famous word lists, and more. you away. You can write microfiction, poetry, CNF, plays, memoir, or anything else.
Writeathon works will be eligible for publication in our forthcoming magazine, ROBIN: a literary quarterly.
We can’t wait to see the surprising stories that will be born.

“Sometimes in a nervous frenzy I just fling words as if I were flinging mud at a wall. Blurt out, heave out, babble out something — anything — as a first draft… Until it exists, writing has not really begun.”
