A theme every month

Kathleen and I met a few weeks ago to talk about the site. One thing we agreed on was that theme weeks are awesome. People seem to like these a lot, so we’re going to be doing more of them. Planning future theme weeks and–importantly–posting a schedule might increase audience involvement and help attract new writers to the site. (Or so our thinking went.)

“Theme weeks” are when we plan a week with a topic, like our old Flash Fiction weeks. While we’ll keep doing those, we want to branch out. Our summer reading week was the first of those ideas. You’ll note that our ideas for future theme weeks get a little vague, so we’d love your ideas on helping to flesh these out.

  • July: Summer reading week
  • August: Summer reading week, part 2
  • September: Interviews with teachers about going back to school
  • October: It’ll be election season
  • November: Holiday films

These weeks are a lot more work for our editorial staff, so this is a bit of an experiment. The themes may change or be moved around. And you can expect to see some more specific posts about these weeks very soon.

Neil Fein is a freelance editor who specializes in novels. If you’ve written a manuscript or are getting close to finishing, you can get in touch with him here. He rides his bicycle as much as he can, and he paints when he damn well feels like it. He’s also a musician who plays in a Celtic fusion band, as well as a folk band.
