For Writers

Save the Date! The 2021 Writers Conference will be Thursday, Nov. 4 – Sunday, Nov. 7.

Next up on the JocoWrites Blog:
The Writers Conference is coming up in November! Register for the conference. In preparation for this awesome 4 day event, we have four prompts to flex your creative muscles. Each prompt will be featured in a daily write-in facilitated by Polly McCann of Flying Ketchup Press during the conference. Each prompt is inspired by suits and their archetypes.

Aim for 1000 words for each prompt, and do not feel rushed to complete them right away, you will have the rest of October and all of November to submit your piece!
