Call For Submissions: Writing Therapy

Writing has so many benefits. I can’t tell you how many times someone has told me or emailed me about how writing has helped them to heal in some way.

At our latest Superstar Session writer convo, Jessica Duenas led the discussion about the role writing played in her sobriety. It was such an inspirational hour and all the CRY writers who attended contributed to making that session an incredible learning experience. If you haven’t signed up for those sessions yet, we have two more left this round and will continue to host sessions year-round. Sign up free here.

For this week’s writing prompt, reflect on a time that writing has been healing. What were you going through? Why did you turn to writing? How did writing get you through whatever was holding you down?

Same rules as always:

  • You can submit to this or ANY of our past writing prompts. Just scroll through our previous newsletters. They’ll be marked “Call for Submissions.”
  • If you’re already a writer for CRY, go ahead and submit.
  • Be as creative as you want in your submissions. As long as you stick to the topic, we’ll consider it.
  • Just because you submit doesn’t mean we’ll post. If you haven’t heard back from us in three days, consider that a pass.
