We’re back from LBCC!
This past weekend, seven of the yeah write editors got together to participate in Long Beach Comic Con, as you probably well know by now. I chat with my fellow editors just about daily and yet some of us were just meeting for the first time. What strikes me is that we all met online through one common interest – writing. We stick together because of one common passion – yeah write.
That’s why we went to LBCC – not just for the chance to hang out (though that was a big draw), but also because we could not pass up this opportunity to get in the same space and talk about one of the things that takes up so much of our day and brain space. We love it here. We love the community that we’ve built and continue to cultivate. We hope you love it, too.
If you’re new here, welcome. Leave us a comment and say hi. Let us know how you got here (especially if you found us through LBCC – we’re calculating ROI over here!). Poke around and feel free to ask us questions, lurk for a while, or jump right on in if you’re feeling adventurous.
Settle in. Show us some of your very best work this week and take some time to check out the work of others. Next week we return to moderated grids (that means we’re letting our submissions editor, Rowan, loose to help guide you through the process.
What did you just destroy?
This optional prompt, which also serves as the ultimate question for our microstory challenge opening Wednesday, is here to serve as your inspiration for your nonfiction submission. Already have your own story thought up? No problem! The prompt is only there if you need it.
