Have you ever wanted to contribute to a blog but were unsure what to write about? Want to enhance your writing skills and have the opportunity to get your personal blog recognized nationally by PRSSA? Welcome “Progressions Writing Prompts,” a monthly, writing exercise and contest provided by PRSSA.
How It Works:
- Each month a writing prompt will be posted on Progressions. Chapter members are encouraged to publish their own answer to the prompt on their personal blogs (not Chapter blogs or websites), and then email the hyperlink of their prompt answers to the publications editor in chief (firstname.lastname@example.org) by the last day of the month.
- The publications editor in chief will determine one winner each month, which will be announced via PRSSA social media. The winning prompt answer will promoted through PRSSA National social media, drawing attention and readership to the winner’s piece and overall blog.

Remember that all answers are due to the publications editor in chief by Wednesday, April 30, 2014.
