To support our young and emerging writers, we want to create a Creative Frenzy of writing prompts, craft books, and inspiration.

We’ll maintain all of our writing prompt posts here, as well as open-access teaching materials for poetry, creative writing, ekphrasis, sharks, and conservation.

In the future, we’ll also maintain our own published books here: books on writing craft, writing prompt journals, and writing goal planners—not to mention our recommendations of other craft books and essays on writing.
