Write Away Weekly
“Write. Find a way to keep alive and write. There is nothing else to say. If you are going to be a writer there is nothing I can say to stop you; if you’re not going to be a writer nothing I can say will help you. What you really need at the beginning is somebody to let you know that the effort is real.” —James Baldwin
What’d You Write?
We’ve changed our name! And Aaron Angello tells us about the daily writing practice that led to his new book, The Fact of Memory.
What Is Write Away Weekly?
- For those who have resolved to commit or recommit to their writing…
- For those who want a fun, creative way to express themselves every week…
- For those looking to breathe new energy into their practice…
- For those who need a little push, a little prompt
Every Saturday you’ll receive an email with a writing prompt and inspiration for the week. Each email is full of examples and craft notes that are practical and insightful.
Now you also can listen to our weekly prompt in podcast form at the Write Away Promptcast! (Found wherever you listen to your podcasts.)
