Newsletter: 12/8/7: Figment Daily Themes for July 30 — August 3 and Writing Competitions
How are your summers going? I hope you are enjoying them.
I just returned from a family reunion (it was great) so this e-mail is a few days late. I have some competitions for you and more Figment Theme Prompts. This week’s Theme Prompts are from novelist Kami Garcia, who challenges us to look at aspects of our stories, our poems and ourselves to enrich our writing.
