Do you struggle with what to write about in your newsletter or blog? Or what to put on your Facebook page? Or what to pitch to the media?
I’ve been considering offering some monthly suggestions to get nonprofit communicators thinking more creatively and strategically about the content they create. I hate the idea that you are suffering from writer’s block when I’m trying to convince you to be a media mogul!
We have the “Nonprofit Writer’s Idea Book” in the works, but that will be more evergreen and will include much more than topical suggestions. For this monthly service, I’m talking about something that’s more timely so it can include ideas related to recent headlines and pop culture.
If I sent out a free monthly email with at least 10 story ideas for the following month (e.g., I’d send you March writing prompts or story ideas at the beginning of February), would you subscribe? If yes, let me know by filling out this short form and when 100 people have subscribed, I’ll start publishing.
Until then, check out some of the writing prompts I’ve offered previously:
