Introducing Sweek Weekly Writing Prompts!

Hey Sweekers!

We’re thoroughly enjoying all the great content that you’re posting, and we’re hungry for more! We think it would be fun to jump-start your creativity by putting it to the test in our newest initiative – the Sweekly Writing Prompts! Through these writing prompts, we hope to give to you a weekly dose of inspiration to make your literary voices heard, practice your technical writing skills, and provide the voracious readers of the Sweek community with even more excellent content! Here’s how it’s going to work:

Every week, we will be posting a new writing prompt on our social media channels and as a new chapter of our Sweek Writing Prompts Story on Sweek – these may take the form of phrases, writing assignments, scenarios and more. To participate you just need to publish your story with the #sweekwritingprompt tag  – it’s as simple as that! It’s up to you whether you want to publish your stories separately, or as different chapters of one story. Your creativity is what counts!

Are you ready for this challenge? Let’s get started right away! Do you have an idea for the next writing prompt? Comment below and your suggestion might be chosen as the official Sweek Writing Prompt!
