WFSC Prompt Book Project 2020

Writing Prompt Journey

The WFSC published Book 1 -

released at Words in the Park 2010.

​

This book offers 20 unique writing prompts, and additional challenges for each, to "pump up the prompt." Samples for each of the prompts are provided by 17 writers from the WFSC and 5 artists provide illustrated accompaniments to each of the prompts. Read them first or read them last... after you've had your turn - there is no right or wrong way to inspire your creativity.

The WFSC celebrates our 15 year anniversary in 2020.


In celebration, members are invited to participate in the second prompt book to be released at Words in the Park 2020.
