Welcome to 2018!

We here at Brandon Christian Writers (or BCW, as our members call it) want to welcome everyone to the new year. 2017 was a lot of fun, with some great presentations. We’re hoping to make this year even better! We’re still working on the schedule, but you can look forward to topics like World Building and Story Telling, and we’ll be kicking everything off with learning about Entering Writing Contests.

As usual, we will also spend the second hour of every meeting doing critique. One thing we use to help spark your muse is monthly writing prompts. You are by no means obligated to write from the prompts, but we provide them as an added resource.

This year’s prompts are as follows:
January 25th: “Do You Have a Dream?”
February 22nd: “Chasing a Shadow”
March 22nd: “Lions and Lambs”
April 26th: “Rebirth”
May 24th: “Bloom Where You’re Planted”
June 28th: “Funny Wedding Story”
July 26th: “Seeing Red (White and Blue)”
August 23rd: “Dream Vacation”
September 27th: “Tearing Down the Wall”
October 25th: “It Was a Dark and Stormy Night”
(No meetings in November or December)

Remember: Works brought for critique should be no more than two pages front only or one page front and back, typed, double-spaced, 12 pt font. And you can find the prompts at any time by checking the “2018 Writing Prompts” tab at the top of this page.

And to finish things off, start the new year with some music by former BCW member Mark Goujon.
