Welcome to the Writers’ Collective’s creative writing blog. Here we’ll be posting snippets – a word, a phrase, a picture, a song lyric – to get your creative juices flowing. When you’ve squeezed those juices down to the last drop, post the results as a comment to the inspirational prompt.
Please note a few ground rules before you hit the “Comment” button:
- Keep responses to prompts under 500 words. If you have a longer piece, consider submitting it to The Collective Consciousness.
- Keep in mind that The Writers’ Collective is a diverse creative community. Our members and visitors are all ages, genders, races, sexualities, abilities and so on. In our view, this confers two responsibilities: 1. To strive not to use language that will offend or trigger another reader; 2. If such language is absolutely necessary to your creative efforts, to put a Reader/Trigger warning at the top of your comment and outline the content that merits this warning (for example, violence, sexual content or offensive language).
- The site administrators reserve the right to remove content they find to be offensive with no other redeeming artistic merit.
- Our comments policy is still in development. If you would like to contribute your suggestions, please respond to this post.
