Goodbye Winter - hello Spring! Let's celebrate the start of a new season with a five-week writing extravaganza. Outline your project and write 3 - 4 sequences/chapters in just five weeks!
Here's the drill: Each week, you'll receive a brief guiding you through the steps the next stage of the five week challenge. Finish it within the week, upload your work, and voila! The very next day, you'll receive a new prompt to ignite your creativity and move your forward. Repeat this process for five weeks, and you'll have crafted 1 - 2 outlines and 40 - 70 new pages of writing.
Now, the best part – the challenge comes with a twist! You can win money! Successfully complete each challenge, and you enter the pool for a chance to win the entire cash prize or opt for a gift certificate double its value for any 2024 class or workshop with us.
Even in the worst-case scenario, you'll end up with new writing and a stronger writing habit. The best-case scenario? Your halfway through a new script/book and have some cold hard cash headed your way (not literally cold and hard, we will send it digitally but you catch our drift.)
This challenge is entirely online, allowing you the flexibility to work at your own pace. No need to worry about specific time commitments – just ensure you meet the final deadlines for each week of the project. Choose your preferred genre, tone, or style, form etc.
Every Tuesday Morning (starting March 19th - the first day of spring!) you will wake up to find a brief in you inbox. It will contain some helpful tools and explorations to guide you through the next week of writing. You have until Monday night at 11:59pm ET to complete that weeks assignment. Start date March 19th 2024. End date April 22nd 2024.
At the end of the five weeks those who have completed all the assignments will be entered into a drawing to win $100 cash! or $200 to spend on any class or workshop with us in 2024.
