#38Write I EAT FEAR Launches Today! 17 Writers in 9 Countries!

#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 culture, craft, or the writing life, and during each 38-hour adventure, writers connect with me and #38Write writers around the world via a Twitter hashtag (#38Write) and a group Pinterest board. Lots and lots of good work getting done.


Eat Fear_MorgueFileFreeToday—January 19—#38Write | I EAT FEAR launches with 17 writers in 9 countries:

  • Malta
  • Japan
  • United Arab Emirates
  • Australia
  • U.K.

Pretty good mix of voices, cultures, and storytelling, isn’t it? If you want to follow along, check out the #38Write | I EAT FEAR Pinterest board, where writers are pinning images and documenting their creative process.

38Write Square Peg, Round Hole?: The September Writing Workshop Launches Tomorrow

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, writing kick-butt descriptions), 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. Lots of good work getting done.


Tomorrow—Saturday, September 29—#38Write | Square Peg, Round Hole? launches! This is the fourth writing workshop in the #38Write monthly series and I’m looking forward to reading what the writers get on the page this time around. 12 writers in 8 countries will be looking at their square peg, round hole (and roundish peg, round hole) experiences around the world and, of course, writing:

  • Australia
  • U.S.
  • U.K.
  • France
  • Belgium
  • S. Korea
  • Japan
  • Spain

Since using Pinterest in the workshop worked so beautifully during the July and August workshops, I’m using it again, and #38Write writers are already pinning on the group #38Write | Square Peg, Round Hole? Pinterest board. (Check it out here.)

Looks like we’re ready to go. If you’re curious about #38Write, you can check out the conversation among writers this weekend using the Twitter hashtag: #38Write.

Happy writerhead!
