You don't have to be a theologian to know that a lot can happen over 40 days: new beginnings, promises, trials and revelations.

40 Days + 40 Writes is not a typical writing workshop. Here’s how it works: Daily writing prompts go out by email at 2 a.m., and you have 24 hours to turn in what you write that day.

Simple, right? There’s no critiquing or rewriting or mandatory feedback. Instead, 40 Days + 40 Writes delivers a daily nudge and then provides the digital space, the peer group, and the ticking clock to help you start writing and keep it up. The point is just doing the writing. Every day.

The philosophy around here is that writing is a tool for thinking, a way of gathering up unformed ideas and bringing them to the part of your mind where you can examine them. What you do with those ideas after that is up to you.
