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 wanted to celebrate International Women's Day.
Here are the entries that took us up on our
"Influential Women" writing challenge:

A mother always has to think twice - for both herself and for her child - and her hugs last long after she lets go. Who else kisses all our offenses into everlasting forgiveness? Sarah Shroud's did and I like to think my mother would have too.
“They will someday. They will.” Nadya was a revolutionary to the bone. The daughter of nobility, she had the best education a woman could get in Russia. She had also been imprisoned and exiled for political offenses. ”Come home. I’ve started a fire.”
