#38Write: Best Writing Quickie in the Known World

#38Write—my global writing initiative—is a monthly series of online writing adventure workshops for place-passionate, culturally curious writers around the world. Each writing adventure focuses on one particular aspect of craft or the writing life (for example, like peregrination), and during each 38-hour adventure, writers connect with me and #38Write writers around the world via a Twitter hashtag and a group Pinterest board. In the September workshop, we had 13 writers in 8 countries.


There’s quickie sex, quickie divorces, and quickie drinks (esp. in Britain).

And thankfully, for writers, there’s #38Write, the best writing quickie in the known world. Once this online writing workshop starts, you’ve got 38 intense hours to complete the adventures, write, and polish a piece that you turn in for feedback.

38 hours. Just you and your pen / keyboard / phone / etc.

And because it’s an online global workshop, you can participate no matter where you’re living, squatting, or traveling: UAE, Bali, Mexico, Turkey, Canada, etc. As long as you have an Internet connection, you’re good to go.

It’s a passionate, creative burst of writing that forces you to dig in and work hard. Once it’s over, you may be exhausted, but you’ll also be wildly inspired.

The next #38Write runs for 38 hours on November 3-4. Registration is now open. Just click here.
