This month’s Writing Maps Writing Contest coincides with the official launch of The Survival Kit for Writers.
The prompt for November’s Writing Contest is: Write a piece called “How to Procrastinate”. We all find ways to avoid writing! Teach us how to do it in style, or slothfully, or in never-before-imagined ways. Take inspiration from your own modes of procrastination, or from the techniques of others. Check out Lorrie Moore’s book Self-Help for great examples of “How To…” stories. Write your “How to Procrastinate” as a short story, a graphic story, a snippet of memoir, a poem, or a prose poem. In 150 words.
The Survival Kit for Writers includes 3 Writing Maps, a Notebook, a pen, some postcards and stickers, and a bar of organic chocolate by award-winning chocolate-makers, Seed & Bean.
