News: Changes at YeahWrite

Six years ago or so I was drafted to help run a new microstory challenge at this little site called YeahWrite. At the time, I had no idea what I was getting into. I just knew I loved tiny little stories, and was utterly charmed (and flattered) by the idea that somebody thought I was the right person for this job. I jumped on board and never looked back.

Little did I know that it would lead to an even bigger and more exciting role as YeahWrite’s Editor-in-Chief.

Over the years YeahWrite has evolved from being “the best place on the ‘net for writers who blog and bloggers who write” to a place “where your words matter.”  We are focusing more and more on craft—fiction, nonfiction, and yes, even microstories—and on helping develop writers’ voices. We provide free weekly writing prompts, run quarterly (paid) competitions, and teach classes and workshops (both free and paid). And best of all, we’ve created a lovely community where writers at all stages of their careers can mingle, learn from each other, and support each other through all the ups and downs. And yes, when we say “career,” we mean it—even if your writing doesn’t pay the bills.

I couldn’t be happier (or prouder) to be a part of YeahWrite’s evolution. I’m excited about what’s coming down the pike, and I would love to show you why YeahWrite has consistently been called one of the best online communities for writers. Here are a few ways you can check us out.

I know this sounds like an advertisement, but I love this place—I really do. I’ve watched so many writers grow into themselves, myself included, and I believe wholeheartedly in our staff and our mission. Your words really do matter at YeahWrite.

Wish me luck, and if you’re on Facebook, swing by the Coffeehouse. I’ll buy you a (virtual) latte!
