Our mission here at BlackBird Literary is to provide a safe environment supporting all writers. No matter your age, verse, writing experience, or whether you have 1 or 100 muses, you are welcome here. Here at BBL we want to help fuel your mind and push your creativity to places you dared not journey before.
We provide a word of the day intended to be used in a simple status blurb that helps start your day. Often times we allow our supporters to choose a word, and those writers are credited when the word is posted. While it is intended as a short little jumpstart to get your mind going for the day, there is no limit to how much you can write! No writing is ever required either, so choose the days you feel work best for you and see what you come up with! All challenges provided by BBL are shared, but if for some reason we missed you PLEASE do reach out! You can find our word of the day master list in the points of interest column to your right.
Weekly and Monthly Challenges
Weekly and Monthly challenge entries, posted every Monday and the 1st respectively, are all put into a drawing for one free edit. Please keep in mind you must have signed our edit request rules to receive it. These challenges will be far more complex than your standard word of the day. We will post reminders on Saturdays for the weekly challenge, and the last Monday of the month for the monthly challenge. You can find links for both challenges in the points of interests column to your right.
NOTE: Weekly Challenges will resume either January 17th or 24th.
On top of challenges, we will also share resources of all types, from writing to editing and everything in between that could improve your muses. Our followers can also suggest and share resources and tips! This is a community resource page. The moment it was created it did not belong solely to the admins but to the writing community as a whole. There is no limit to what we can all accomplish together.
