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), Tuesday (fiction|poetry) and Wednesday (microstories). Community voting takes place on Thursdays, and winners are announced on Fridays.

You can add your own post as long as it meets our 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 offer some critical suggestions on how to improve your submission for next time. 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 weekly mailer to stay on top of the challenges.

We are thrilled have you join our growing community!

It’s been a long, amazing, distracting week. One of my best friends has been in town, after a surprise move from Chicago (where I’d been planning to visit her this fall) to the East Coast. She’s one of those people who sneaks into your life, who you meet at a party trying to make small…

I specialize in 7 minute sonnets, 24 hour thesis papers (j/k it was at least 32 and I was awake for all of them) and 11-hour-10,000-word stints on the novel.

Simmering summer I was flabbergasted by the parade of Back to School pictures marching through my social media feeds last week. We’re not even close to Labor Day, I thought. Why are kids headed back so early? Did their parents just decide it was enough, pack lunches, and string backpacks around shoulders this year? When I posted my…
