Dear Lit Up family,

Hello! Hola! Salut! Yia Sas! Konnichiwa! Namaste! Privet! Nín hao! Nomoskar! Ahlan bik! Tungjatjeta! Nazdar! Hallo! Shalóm! Szia! Hai! Dia is muire dhuit! Es mīlu tevi! Selamat petang! Witajcie! Jambo! Hej! Merhaba!(beautiful greetings and wishes continue)

Wherever you are, and whatever you’re doing right now, we hope this newsletter finds you healthy, inspired, and with a big smile.

March was awesome, we ran a fantastic writing prompt in collaboration with the folks at the splendid Writing Cooperative ( Stella J. McKenna, Jessica Jungton, Sand Farnia and Justin Cox 🍩) and in our last newsletter (Lit Up: A Complicated Love ) we announced the winners ( Tracy Aston, V. Plut, Brian Kerg, Indira Reddy, Jef Littlejohn, Amanda Z, neira) ! You can find the full list of entries in the newsletter mentioned above and on our Prompts tab.

We would like to thank you again for participating and for all the support the publication and the writers received. It really means a lot to us, and it encourages us to continue doing our best to inspire our wonderful writers, and to provide the highest quality fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction on Medium.

But. We didn’t only publish prompt entries in March. We published some general submissions that are not to be missed, from which we have selected the very best and listed them below.

Don’t forget to highlight, clap for, and share your favourite reads so more people can find and enjoy them!

The Lit Up team is currently preparing a new literary treat for you all. Hopefully, you will find out all about it in our next newsletter. We will also reopen our gates to new writer requests very soon.

Enjoy the reads!
