    What is Expressive Writing? Expressive writing—also called emotional writing—is the process of writing about personal and emotional events without regard to form, structure, spelling, grammar, or punctuation. Essentially, it is free-writing, often inspired by a prompt, poem, or piece of literature. We do not accept fiction. Word count is flexible, but the length should be no more than what can be generated in a 20-minute free-write. THEMES by PROMPT We publish writing using a series of prompts as an entry point for exploring emotions, personal histories, shared truths, joy, grief, shame, and those themes that matter most to us in our hearts.
