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 little things that matter, as we wind down to the end of the year. Tiny lights on evergreen trees. Tiny candles in their rows. The tiny terminal ‘e’ that differentiates between a ballad and a ballade.
