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? Participate in “Progressions Writing Prompts,” a monthly, writing exercise and contest held 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 on the PRSSA National social media platforms. The announcement on social media will draw attention and readership to the winner’s piece and overall blog.
- The following disclaimer must be included at the beginning or end of your blog post in order for your prompt answer to be considered:

If you haven’t taken one of these classes or if your college doesn’t offer them, what do you wish professors would teach about the digital world?
Remember that all answers are due to the publications editor in chief by Saturday, May 31, 2014. Happy blogging!
