Hi there, I would so love to join Everything you need to know about #1000wordsofsummer.

But do I need to become a paid subscriber in order to do that? Please let me know as I could really do with the encouragement of a community - it is just that must be super careful with money. TIA

I am a subscriber but what I am doing wrong? I don't seem to be able to get anymore info about the next writing challenge? Thanks so much!

This is an annual challenge. We already had this year's challenge - it's in the summer, in June, and it lasts for two weeks. (You can see the dates above on this page.) You can still get regular newsletters about writing weekly if you are signed up for this list. Good luck!

Is the slack channel still live? If so, please post a new link - the old links posted on this page & in the comments are inactive. TIA!

It's not still live. It is only live for one month a year surrounding the actual event. The event is in June.

Hi Jami! So looking forward to 1000 words of summer! I’m having a bit of a problem joining the slack channel though-when I try the link it says my invitation has been revoked! Yikes! Any thoughts on how I can get in? Thanks!!

Thank you for keeping this up, Jami. Year six, here we go! So glad to be finishing a few short pieces I've been writing as a break from my last novel and to dive back in to the current one and, hopefully, get closer to that first magical draft. I love this community and your letters. See you all here soon!
