Guides for your Writing Journey by Jennifer Cornick

Guides for your Writing Journey by Jennifer Cornick

Sometimes writing can feel a bit like wandering. In the wilderness. Without a compass. And no map. Fortunately, other writers have been there before and have written handy guides to the undiscovered wilderness of the blank page.

Read on to discover the best writing guides, including Novelista: Anyone Can Write a Novel (Yes, even you) by Claire Askew.

Empty City Streets

Empty City Streets

I drove like my life depended on it. I really felt it did. Every empty street a wasteland bereft of humanity.

I had been so looking forward to the holidays. Although holidays seemed too rich a word for what we had this year. Of course we didn’t have to work, but the lines between work and home have blurred to an insignificant grey whisper like the vapour trail of a plane we used to see in the sky long after they had disappeared over the Atlantic and far away. Will the pilots even remember how to fly?

Secret Santa Story Share

Secret Santa Story Share

What better way to spread the Christmas joy than to share a delightful collection of Christmas stories from Sunday Writers’ Club members Tamara Raidt, Brigitta Serbán, Connie Phlipot, Jennifer Cornick, Sandra Völker, and Stephen Hewitt. These enthusiastic SWC members (and more) participated in our Secret Santa Story Share – writing a Christmas story and sending it by mail to another member.

The Last Tree of Serengia

The Last Tree of Serengia

This week, Sunday Writers’ Club member Sandra Völker takes us to the futuristic city of Serengia for a poignant story about trees and the destruction of their habitat in the name of progress, about waking up to their importance all too late. But perhaps in Sandra’s story, like the climate emergency we’re all living through, there is a glimmer of hope. What do you think?

The Central European Species of Tram

The Central European Species of Tram

Trams are a much-loved mode of transport–rattling and clanging along busy streets in the world’s most cosmopolitan cities. But the Central European species of tram is particularly fascinating, as Sunday Writers’ Club member Connie Phlipot shares with us here.
Do you enjoy riding the tram? Please do share your thoughts about this story and how you feel about riding trams in the comments section at the end of this blog post.

Two New Stories from Sunday Writers’ Club Members

Two New Stories from Sunday Writers’ Club Members

This week we’re delighted to present two new stories from Sunday Writers’ Club members Brigid Whoriskey and Connie Phlipot. With a ghost at the stairs and a frightful discovery to a stone carver commissioned to capture the vision of a city in a century long past, these stories will take you on journeys of the imagination. We hope you enjoy them and encourage you to leave your thoughts for the writers and other readers.

What Makes for a Good Life

What Makes for a Good Life

Sunday Writers’ Club member Angie Reitlinger-Zorn shares her creative writing with us, inspired by the SWC prompt: The Art of Living—use your wisdom to explore this topic, perhaps as words of advice to a friend
or child, or even as a gentle reminder to yourself. What makes for a good life?

Welcome to Kulturverein Sunday Writers’ Club. You wouldn’t believe how happy (and relieved) I feel to be writing this welcome blog. It’s been a long, slow, frustrating, challenging, stressful, hair-pulling, fingernail-gnawing, late-night-drinking, caffeine-overdosing...

Melted Candle by Connie Phlipot

Melted Candle by Connie Phlipot

Kira set the cardboard box on the floor.   Tape had not stuck well — the air had been too humid — so she had tied a twine around the box.  Now the knot had tightened to an impossible-to-break lock.  She looked around the room for scissors or a...

The Fox by Emma Downey

‘There was a fox on the road, I nearly ran over the poor little fellow. Luckily I was inching along in the car because of the fog out. He just stepped out of the ditch in front of me, I’d say he thought he would have the road to himself in those early hours, he’s a...
