The Quote Spark and the Concept Spark are meant to be used for personal essays, creative non-fiction, articles, or opinion pieces. However, if so led, you may also write a poem or piece of fiction. The point is to get creative!

Quote Spark

Use the following quote as a spark.

The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking.
It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.
Albert Einstein

Concept Spark

What does the word ‘humility’ mean to you? How does your definition relate to the state of the world today?

You have a full week to write about one or both of these sparks — from Oct. 18th-24th. Take your time and craft a thorough piece. Let your emotions lead you across the page. Delve deeply or remain on the surface — your choice.

Word Length — up to 1000 words.

Write promptly and enjoy! And don’t forget about the Monthly Theme!

Ravyne Hawke, Editor
