How The Daily Writers Helps You Write Every Day

Handwritten page of a notebook and a crumpled up piece of paper.

Ideally, each of us would write every day. Very few of us do. It’s easy to skip a day. Who will know? And then a few days go by. A week. A month. Meanwhile, our ideas and stories never make it to the page.

The Daily Writing Prompts program holds you accountable for developing a daily writing habit. With a daily writing prompt and a new writing partner every week, you will no longer be alone as you face the blank page. Receive only encouragement from your writing partner—negativity will not be tolerated*—and respond to their writing. Spend 15 minutes writing and 5-15 minutes reading and commenting on your writing partner’s work. *You can request constructive feedback.

  • On the Sunday before the session begins, you’ll receive the name and email address of your partner.
