Writing Prompts

Every writer’s brain is unique… how many different stories can grow from a single seed?

Monthly writing prompts are announced at the Chapter Meetings. These prompts can be used if you need inspiration for something to write for the next critique session.


2017 Writing Prompts are designed to feed into the “A Year of The Monkeys” anthology. Each month is dedicated to a zodiac sign with prompts taken from any aspect of that sign as referenced in the following chart:
