About Us

All good things must come to an end, and, alas, this is the final installment of The Time Is Now for 2011. But don't lose heart! Next week, we begin again, with another year of prompts, exercises, book recommendations, and more to keep you writing all year long. Happy holidays!

Write a poem that is an elegy for something or someone you've had to let go of this past year.



Ruminate on the past year, remembering both your achievements and your failures. Write a story about one of your failures or regrets from the perspective of someone other than yourself. Consider rewriting the past, to transform this incident into an achievement by changing the facts around it or by changing the way your protagonist perceives it.  

Each week we recommend a book--a newly published title or an invaluable classic--that will help you on your writing journey. This week's pick:
Proofs and Theories: Essays on Poetry (Ecco Press, 1994) by Louise Gluck 
Don't miss out on the latest grants, awards, contests, and conferences. Join the community of writers!
