Episode 22: January/February writing prompts

Hey hey! Today we have our monthly writing prompt episode — we do a mini-critique of our January responses and share the February prompt. We also play our “everything is terrible/what’s working now” game.

To join in on the writing prompts, and be entered into a drawing for some surprise writing mail, send us your response! You can add it to the post on our blog, send an email, voice memo, semaphore, whatever.

We’d love to read your response on the podcast, but are happy to make it anonymous or just send you private feedback. We’ll share our responses and comments on the blog later this week. The giveaway is open to all countries.

You can listen to the episode right here on this page, or get Marginally on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, or wherever get your podcasts.

As always, we’d love for you to take a minute to rate and review us in your podcast app, as this helps other listeners find the show.

Theme music is “It’s Time” by Scaricá Ricascá.
