Welcome new writers!

It is so good to see more of you joining 100 Word Challenge and sharing your writing with the world!

Will you be on the showcase?

The first showcase of 2017 will be published on 19th January

Do send your nominations for any great posts you read to me via the email in the newsletter. I just need the ID number (found in the far left column) and the name. Make sure you come back here on Thursday to check the entries.

100WC Ambassadors

Last week I mentioned the chance for you class to become a 100WC Ambassador. This role will mean that other classes thinking of taking part in 100WC could contact you to see what you think of the challenge. You can tell them how to do it and make sure they know all about commenting.

In return, your class will be list on the Ambassadors Roll of Honour with links to your blog. You will also get a fabulous badge to display for the world to see.

If you would like to put yourself forward, check out the details in this week’s newsletter!

Hub news

As you may know, it is possible to join a hub and support two other classes with their 100 Word Challenge posts. Some have been very successful, whilst others have not really got off the ground. Over the week, I will write to all of you who are in a hub to gauge the next steps.


New innovations

Would you like to be the ‘go to’ person for 100 Word Challenge? Are you keen to get more young writers involved in this special challenge?

Later this month we will be selecting Ambassadors for 100 Word Challenge. Watch out for further details but get in touch if you might be interested.


Latest prompt

The first prompt of the year goes back to Roman myths and legends. It concerns Janus who was the god of beginnings,  transitions,  passages of time, and endings. He is usually depicted as having two faces since he looks to the future and to the past.

The prompt is:

…I looked in front and behind. Which way?…

Things to consider:

  • Where are you?
  • What is the time of the year?
  • How do you feel?
  • What lies in each direction?

The form will be live until Saturday 14th January
