Would you like to swing on a star?
Welcome, one and all, to the speakeasy at yeah write. If you’re looking for a sparkle of stardust magic in the form of fiction or poetry, this is your galaxy! If you favor traditional blog posts and personal essay, catch a falling star over on the challenge grid.
A little comet told me that we’re welcoming writers from Tipsy Lit to our solar system for the week — grab an orbit and c’mon in! And let’s consider this a cultural exchange, as several of us will be warping over there next week for First Contact. What’s our goal with this exchange? Peace throughout the galaxy, of course. And a wee bit of horizon expanding. And some good-old camaraderie with other writerly internet species. So welcome our new friends with some amazing stuff this week!
OK, all of you stars and star catchers out there — we’ve not only met our 20 entry threshold for the editor’s pick, but we obliterated it last week, like a bobsledder stuck in a bathroom in Sochi. Great job, superstars! Let’s keep that awesome momentum going. But remember, even though we’re not moderated like the challenge grid, we want your best stuff, so don’t slap a new label on a jar of peanut butter and call it caviar, ‘kay?
Twinkle, twinkle, little prompts
