What is the Weekend Write-In?
In 2014 an Amazon hosted website called WriteOn began a wonderful exercise. Each week staff tasked group of committed authors, to write a 500 word short story based on a prompt they supplied. In 2016, Amazon announced that WriteOn would be discontinued. Set adrift, these ‘flash fictions’ writers finally found a home on the online writing community of Wattpad. The tradition of the Weekend Write-In continues today five years after it started. The Weekend Write-In is a warm and welcoming group open to all writers. This podcast is pleased to share just a few of of the hundreds Weekend Write-In stories as read by the authors themselves.
The Weekend Write-In posts a prompt every Friday on the Wattpad Community pages and authors have seven days to write, post, and comment on one another’s work.
There is only one rule that must be followed to join the Weekend Write-In. Be nice. The Weekend Write-In especially welcomes new writers, and writers not so confident in their abilities. Commentary on Wattpad is welcome, but should be gentle. They want to encourage people to have fun, meet up with old friends, and make new ones.
