We're back! RSVP for Salon No. 4 - Space


Happy Wednesday! January was a moment of pause, but believe us, we were working. As a result, we have exciting news to share with you all so scroll down to discover your next writing prompt and where we'll be gathering to talk all about it (hint: the very 'grammable "all the feels" neon sign lives there.)

What We’re Writing About Next


Hello Novella women! This February, we're kicking off a salon series with our lovely friends at Lou & Grey and we invite you to join us as we explore our interpretations of the theme "space". As always, you are welcome to write literally and figuratively: the physical and emotional feeling of taking up room, a safe haven you've found in recent years, how distance can affect families, lovers, and friends. We want to know: what does "space" mean to you?

You may respond to the prompt in whichever literary method you please: song, poem, short story, script, etc. All we ask is that you keep your work limited to a maximum of 2 pages or 5-7 minutes spoken aloud.
