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 at firstname.lastname@example.org by the last day of the month.

- The following disclaimer (including hyperlink) must be included at the beginning or end of your blog post in order for your prompt answer to be considered:
