Writing Prompts

Instructions 1. Every Thursday we will post a photo, illustration, or story starters. You are then invited to write a piece in any genre using the picture featured in the post as your inspiration. 2. If you are using a blog to write your piece, Mr Linky allows you to leave a link to your blog. Put your name and link in the Mr. Linky box below the picture. Please link back to this page (https://creativewriting.ie/writing-prompts/) on your post. If you don’t have a blog, but want to participate, you can sign up for a free blog at www.wordpress.com. 3. All entries will be automatically entered into our writing prompt competition. The current competition will close on January 31, 2019. Every entry posted as part of our weekly writing prompts will be eligible. The winner will receive an Amazon voucher worth €10! There is no cost to enter, no word limit and you can post as many entries as you wish. We reserve the right to remove any content that is likely to offend or distress others; is discriminatory, abusive, obscene or otherwise offensive; or breaks the law (breach of copyright, defamation). If you are under the age of 18, you must have the consent of a parent or guardian over 18 to enter the competitions. Creative Writing Ink reserves the right to ask for proof of permission. Entries without permission will be disqualified. Many thanks to everyone who contributed to our writing prompts page in August and September and congratulations to Philippa Crundwell, the winner. You can read the winning entry here.
