What color was his hair?
Who were his parents?

Hello all! We hope you are enjoying this holiday season!
As we prepare for our New Years classes, we’ve had some requests for writing prompts so here we go…
Tell us about Santa!
What year Santa was born, what was his birth name, his parents’ names, what did his parents do and what was the name of the town in the North Pole he was born in?
P.S. If your imagination really inspires you to write a story of sorts and you’d like your work to be considered for possible publication (digital or print), please fill out the contact form below.
Yes, it’s that time of year again! Time to crack open the books and delve into some magic!
Our CyberCafe Classes and prompts will resume September 19, 2016. Hope you all had an awesome summer!
Oh, we need some inspiration, Peeps!!!
What better way to get it than with some darn good words???
Chop, Chop! Let’s get to it!!
and Happy Friday!
“On Memorial Day, I don’t want to only remember the combatants. There were also those who came out of the trenches as writers and poets, who started preaching peace, men and women who have made this world a kinder place to live.” – Eric Burdon
Note to all…
Write on, Peeps!!
Show us what you’ve got!
Using the notes and images you captured from last week’s exercise, write two scenes (1 narrative, 1 dialogue) to bring your story’s surroundings to life.
Remember, strong writing uses strong words.
Keep this in mind when your pen/pencil wants to add excessive verbage:
Prose is architecture, not interior decoration.
– Ernest Hemingway
