"Raymond’s eye for telling detail is very fine, as one expects of an accomplished writer, but to this she adds the informing eye of a natural historian of place.”

Weekly Writing: A road trip to “On the Ground”

Good morning, writers!

For our writing prompt today, I thought we’d take a little road trip over to the Conversations Across Borders blog, “On the Ground.” For any of you who aren’t yet familiar with Conversations Across Borders, it is a fabulous nonprofit organization, based in the Pacific Northwest, whose mission is to connect and support readers and writers around the world. This mission is accomplished through four programs: Cab Literary Journal, the Conversations Across Borders Project, writing workshops, and the Writers in the Schools Program. All proceeds from these programs are given as grants to schools and writing programs. For a little more information on CAB, check out this Q&A with one of its founders.

Meanwhile, one way to get familiar with CAB and everything it’s about is to read On the Ground. Visit, read, comment, and come back. Click here for today’s writing prompt, and after you’ve done the prompt, stay awhile and enjoy learning more about CAB.
