Two Thousand Words Project


Two Thousand Words 2014:

"Two Thousand Words is an art and literature collaborative project, where artists and writers get to work together. Last round the writers went first and wrote up drafts and synopses, which the artists looked over and chose a project they wanted to create artwork for. This round however is going to be a reverse round. Meaning that now the artists are going to come up with their art first, and writers will choose something that inspires them to write an accompanying story or poem!"

See link for the latest update in Two Thousand Words!:…

Writing Resources

Live-Love-Write has a new program designed to provide participants with somebody they can count on for help and readership. Participants will be assigned in pairs, and each member in a pair will tutor and critique the other, help with inspiration and writing, and participate in monthly projects and contests.

A great group to check out, especially if you are low on prompt ideas. They have a large list of some here:…

I'm ~Treo-LeGigeo from #Teenage-Writers and we've been running a large art/lit collaboration project, which  just got its own group #TwoThousandWords. We're hoping to spread the word to build up watcher numbers come posting in November, and also for future rounds of the project. I'm not sure if this counts as news, but if you could drop us in it would be very much appreciated :-)
