A Newsletter From Know Yourself #2
Now a Sub-Publication of Assemblage
This publication didn’t really go as planned. We thought that more writers would be interested in a list of dedicated prompts for those times when writer’s block is real. We were wrong. Or maybe we weren’t.
Know Yourself is now a sub-publication of Assemblage. Think of Know Yourself as the place to go when you don’t know what to write about, but you have to write. You need to get words on the page. Ideas of out of your head. Or just to get out of your own way. We are here for you.
Getting to know yourself is a process that takes patience, understanding, openness, and dedication. This publication, and the prompts associated with it, are here to assist you in that process.
We currently have 50 writing prompts available to help you dig deep on you, with more coming every week. And starting today, we will release a featured weekly writing prompt from the list.
How It Works
Once each writing prompt is released and numbered, then that card is open to all submissions that answer the same question. We envision a diverse collaboration of life experience and exploration inside one publication, all coming from these different writing prompts. Choose the one you like, write, and submit. This is how.
Once the publication starts filling up, the homepage will be segmented by each prompt so that readers can take a deep dive into an important life question but from many different viewpoints.
Write a story. Write a poem. Write a personal essay. All you have to do is respond to the prompt in the way that you see fit. That. Is. All.
This Week’s Writing Prompt
#43. Write about a time you felt left out.
That’s it. There are no requirements. Just write. With that said, don’t just scribble and submit. As much as we want to be a place to exorcise words from your insides, we still want those words to be your best response to the prompt. Write. Edit. Release. Get to know yourself.
Request to Write for Know Yourself
We are open to all writers who want to get to know themselves. The only requirements are that you answer the writing prompt, you code the subtitle of your story to fit our guidelines (Know Yourself #), and the first header of your story is the question posed by the writing prompt. This is so readers can easily find consistent pieces on the same prompt. Look at how other stories look to see how yours should.
