Writing Prompts

Instructions 1. Every Thursday we will post a photo, illustration, or story starters. You are then invited to write a piece in any genre using the picture featured in the post as your inspiration. 2. To enter, please go to ‘Click to Enter’. You can then enter the link to your piece. This could be a link to your blog or Facebook page where you posted the piece. If you don’t have a blog, but want to participate, you can sign up for a free blog at www.wordpress.com. 3. Please link back to this page (https://creativewriting.ie/writing-prompts/) on your blog post. 4. All entries will be automatically entered into our writing prompt competition. The current competition will close on September 30, 2019. Every entry posted as part of our weekly writing prompts will be eligible. The winner will receive an Amazon voucher worth €10! There is no cost to enter, no word limit and you can post as many entries as you wish. We reserve the right to remove any content that is likely to offend or distress others; is discriminatory, abusive, obscene or otherwise offensive; or breaks the law (breach of copyright, defamation). If you are under the age of 18, you must have the consent of a parent or guardian over 18 to enter the competitions. Creative Writing Ink reserves the right to ask for proof of permission. Entries without permission will be disqualified. Many thanks to everyone who contributed to our writing prompts page over the last few months. Deborah Cooper was the December/January winner for ‘The Let-Go’. You can read the winning entry here. Abi Hennig was the winner for February/March for ‘Now you see her’.   This competition is run in partnership with The Writing District, The Writing Quarter and Creative Writing NZ.
