Who are we?

weekly writing challenge

Welcome to the yeah write weekly writing challenge! Yeah write is a collection of your very best posts. We have new writing challenges opening every Monday (nonfiction) and Tuesday (fiction|poetry). Community voting takes place on Thursdays, and winners are announced on Fridays.

You can add your own post as long as it meets our basic submission guidelines. If it doesn’t fit the guidelines, much like a literary magazine would, we will return it to you with a nice thank you note and a brief explanation on why you didn’t make the grid. Need more info? Visit our FAQ.

Yeah write is the perfect way to create buzz for smaller blogs, and we’re excited to highlight the wonderful writing discovered in obscure places. Sign up for our mailer to stay on top of the challenges.

We are thrilled have you join our growing community!

It’s the weekend, so the moonshine grid is open Lately I’ve been fantasizing about the idea of buying an espresso machine. I have been wanting one for years, and as the weather cools off, morning cappuccinos start sounding heavenly. Why can’t I just go to a local coffee shop and be done with it? Well, for starters, who has…
