Just Write

Monthly prompts to kickstart your writing, with space to share work and chat with other writers.

    • May prompt: Everyday objects
      Our May writing prompt is all about everyday objects. We’d like you to choose an object from around your home to use as a starting point for writing and look at it in a different way. What story might a humble matchbox or a button have to tell?

Book Club

See what we’re reading this month and join the discussion.

    • Crying in H Mart by Michelle Zauner
      Described as ‘beautiful, moving and insightful’ (Claudia Roden), this New York Times Bestseller (and soon-to-be film) from Grammy nominee Michelle Zauner is a powerful memoir about how food and culture tie us to those we have lost.
