Prompt-Writing like Speed-Dating: Prompt, Write, Next, Prompt, Write, Next | Virtual

July 5, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

If you’ve attended Let’s Write Together! with Shuly Xóchitl Cawood, you’ll recognize the format: Shuly shares a piece of writing to inspire you, offers a prompt related to the piece, and gives you time to write. Except she’ll be offering a new piece and prompt every 10-12 minutes during this two-hour workshop. Think of it like speed dating—there’s another piece and prompt just around the corner ready to inspire you, with plenty of time for sharing at the end.

Shuly Xóchitl Cawood is the author of A Small Thing to Want: Stories (Press 53) and four other books: What the Fortune Teller Would Have Said: Flash Essays, winner of the 2022 Iron Horse Literary Review Prose Chapbook Competition; Trouble Can Be So Beautiful at the Beginning (Mercer University Press), winner of the 2019 Adrienne Bond Award for Poetry; 52 Things I Wish I Could Have Told Myself When I Was 17 (Cimarron Books, 2018); and The Going and Goodbye: A Memoir (Platypus Press, 2017). Shuly earned her MFA from Queens University of Charlotte, and her writing has been published in The New York Times, Brevity, The Rumpus, Cider Press Review, and others. A new poetry collection, Something So Good It Can Never Be Enough, is forthcoming from Press 53 this September.
