No one is born a writer. No one sets down the career path to become a blogger. It’s more of a natural occurrence that is found when experience, opportunity, and courage collide, and the culmination of thought and emotion is set free in the form of the written word.
Every writer has to start somewhere, and at Random Writers, our goal is to make this site that starting place for you. That’s not to say Random Writers is only for beginners. We welcome any and all writers looking to provide content, contribute to discussion, and expand their audience.
We’re currently seeking writers to contribute content for any of our current channels.
- PROMPTS: Write about one of our pre-determined topics. Posts will be published the week of that particular topic.
- FAITH: Write about your experiences with your faith, your beliefs, etc.
- PARENTING: Write about thoughts, experiences, ideas, etc. regarding parenting and raising children. You don’t have to be a parent to contribute to this channel.
- COMMUNITY: Write about what’s important to you about your local or global community. Looking to get the word out about your favorite charity or an upcoming event? This is the channel for you.
As Random Writers grows, we hope and expect to see our channels expand to include different categories of conversation.
