Open invitation to join National Write Out to pen protests against Trump’s policies
GritoBlast! : From Wednesday, January 18 through Saturday, February 18, 2017, a national call-out to writers, and non-writers, who would like to contribute a poem, a piece of flash fiction, short story, essay, inspired long tweet, handwritten ars poetica or other literary creation responding to the prompt:
What’s worth fighting for is worth writing for.
Dubbed the National Write Out, organizers of the event say:
Let your words stand against the flood of fake news messages of hopelessness and hate, and the normalization of extremist thought in the early days of this new administration.
Using the hashtag #FightandWrite, we want to invite and incite writers to create literary works that rise boldly to the challenge of the day.
We also encourage nonprofit organizations, literary magazines, zines, blogs, and other publications and organizations across the country to embrace the call and promote the work produced under the #FightandWrite hashtag.
Several national organizations will be sending out the call to their members. Please join them. We know that the very ideas, stories and values that stand boldly against infringement on our rights and freedom will also inspire and ultimately save us. And there’s even room to wax prophetic.
