Welcome to #OpenWrites!

We’re excited to announce the launch of a new open social networking site that has been smoldering for a while but spontaneously erupted during the past 24 hours!

#OpenWrites and openwrites.wordpress.com provide virtual spaces to share writing events sponsored by educational institutions, community groups, and those taking place in partnerships.  #OpenWrites invites announcements of (and conversation about) any kind of writing “event”: student write-ins, community publications, activist writing work…the list goes on!

Visit openwrites.wordpress.com and tweet #OpenWrites to share your events and to learn about what others across the country (and around the world!) are doing!  We will regularly post events on this blog, as well as other pertinent postings.  If you have something you want to share here, let us know!

#OpenWrites belongs to everyone!
