A quick note from yeah write principal editor Erica M
Please help us welcome Meg Galipault as our newest yeah write editor! Meg will be working with Natalie, her fiction co-editor, to relaunch the speakeasy in this space October 12. We are excited to have Meg bring her many talents to our editorial staff, yet we are a tiny bit sad as she loses eligibility for editor’s selections each week. However, editor’s submissions are accepted in any challenge, and we are proud of her for winning this week’s non-fiction popular vote.
Meg’s very first post as our new Friday winners’ post cheerleader is below. Many many thanks to Cindy Reed, who will stay with us as a contributing writer, for setting the yeah write example for congratulating our winners each Friday for the past year.
Yeah write #180 weekly writing challenge editors’ pick: non-fiction challenge
Yeah write #180 weekly writing challenge editors’ picks: micro-stories challenge
I watched the morning sunlight curl through her hair.
Changing shades with subtle variations.
Captivated; I marked the warm, buttery-white glow that framed her countenance.
Meanwhile, cool-white reflected from the shameless wisps that couldn’t be tamed,
rivaling the blued-white of her blouse.
Welcome to our six virgins in the challenges this week, and congratulations to this week’s winners! Everybody: before you go, please take some time to leave your favorites a little love in the comments.
Weekend moonshine grid opens today at 6 p.m. eastern time
Natalie D is hosting this gin joint, opening the doors to yeah write’s weekend community, the moonshine grid. I’m dusting off my Foxfire books in search of some authentic moonshine recipes, listed somewhere in between hog dressing tips and snake handling first-aid. No offense to Cindy R, but the leftover pumpkin spice-flavored batch tastes like a Yankee Candle. The moonshine grid is the flip side of our weekly challenges: a laid-back place where we accept anything except commercial or sponsored posts. It’s a great showcase for your practice writing — those posts that might not meet the challenge grid submission guidelines. Closing time is midnight on Sunday, 11:59 PM EST.
