Writer Wednesday is a weekly open call on a particular theme or subject that our community of bloggers are welcomed to participate in.
If you're a blogger that's interested in getting a handle on your craft (or even connecting with an audience!) then this is definitely the challenge for you.
How Does It Work?
Every Friday, we issue the theme or subject via a blog post that will be featured in our Friday newsletter.
To participate, simply post a blog on that theme, but tag that post with "writer wednesday" (within quotes, all lowercase) before the following Wednesday at 12PM EST.
- Round-up all the participating entries in a entry such as this.
- Feature all the participating entries in our Friday newsletter that goes directly to our over 12,000 members.
- Feature all the participating entries via our
Twitter with the popular #writerwednesday hashtag.
- Select our personal favourite that will be featured to the over 13,000 members in our
Zoomers on Facebook community.
In the latest edition of this feature, we were inspired by the end of the NHL lockout.
Here are the entries that took us up on our
"Hockey Night in Canada" writing challenge:
Since I don't know much about Hockey Night, I decided to share everything I learned about Canada in my School Years.
NHL rosters proved that all hockey players were Canadian and lead us to wonder if all Canadian men were hockey players. Not many women played in those days.
It doesn't matter what the teams are called, hockey is back and as Mario Lemieux once said: "Every day is a great day for hockey"and Hockey Night in Canada.
Thanks to Steve and Linda for all their hard work! Please support our writers' original works by visiting their individual blogs as well as leaving comments.
Writer Wednesday will take a short break. We'll be back with more challenges in January!
