"Wow! The 'Writing Prompts' are the best thing I've ever gotten via blogs/enewsletters I follow- VERY helpful! Thank you!" - Stephani Adams, Red Feather Development Group
"This is absolutely tremendous! Your ideas really fire up the imagination. Thank you." - Mary Brisson, Eastside Audubon
"I appreciate your monthly prompts. I have decided to actually put them in red ink in my new planner on the appropriate days to remind me to use them that day for a Facebook entry for our Library." - Kathy Stutzman, Warsaw Community Public Library
"Kivi, I love, love, love your writing prompts! I have a horror of writer’s block, and your prompts are my safeguard in the face of brain death, aphasia, malaise, etc. Thank you so much!" - Sharon Strong, International Primate Protection League
Let's take some of the grief out of nonprofit writing and smash through your writer's block!
At the start of each month, we'll send you an email with at least 10 prompts to get you thinking about articles, stories, press releases, blog posts, Facebook updates, letters, and other content that you could write for the following month. For example, at the start of March, you'd get writing prompts for April. That way you'll have time to think about the ideas and incorporate them into your calendar.
The idea isn't to do your editorial calendar for you or to tell you what to say to your supporters. Only you can figure that out. What we will do is give you at least 10 prompts to get you thinking more creatively and strategically about what you'll write.
How Katie Gustainis Vela of Rosie's Place uses the prompts:
"These are fabulous and so helpful! Your writing prompts help me as I prepare my social media content calendar for the month. They also serve as jumping off points, especially during the months we’re creating newsletter content. I find that even if I don’t end up referencing a specific holiday or metaphor, thinking about content in a timely context will result in better content that is more relevant to our audiences’ daily lives. Thank you for what you do."
