HOWLING: Writing Away The Dark



2 Jan 2024

January is also known as the ‘wolf month’ and is often a time of retreat, hibernation, and rest. We look for ways to keep out the dark and make way for the light. To help with this transition For Books’ Sake are bringing back HOWLING: Writing Away the Dark – a guided writing series throughout the month of January.

These inspiring prompts have been especially harvested from the extraordinary writers we have worked with over the last year. So if you’ve been to any of our other workshops and loved it, or been wanting something more laid back to go at your own pace, this is the perfect place to cosy up and invest in your writing practice with us.

Shake off the cold and get writing with imaginative, mindful and meaningful guidance. We will provide a digital space to share and comment on your writing – should you wish to do so; plus you will get exclusive access to the FBS digital community.

Howling prompts will arrive in your inbox every weekday through January 2024.

The Details


WHEN: Tuesday 2nd – Weds 31st January. You decide when and where to do each day’s tasks and – if you’re not available every day – you can work through the materials at your own pace. From Monday – Friday each week you will receive a new prompt. Each weekend we will have a digital check-in and live-forum to discuss the wonders we’ve been creating.

WHERE: The programme takes place entirely online via emails delivered direct to your inbox each day throughout January. So – wherever you are in the world – we’d love to have you involved.

WHO: Writers wanting to develop their motivation and momentum to create a solid writing habit. The daily prompts and resources can support you to develop standalone poems or stories, or combined to develop something longer, exploring new topics, techniques and themes along the way. Although aimed at those writing fiction or poetry, the materials could also be used for those wanting to explore other genres too.

Wherever you’re at in your writing journey, HOWLING will support you to develop, explore and strengthen your creative courage, passion and gain a community of likeminded souls.
