How Does One DigiWriMo?

  1. There are no secrets to doing DigiWriMo, no right way and no wrong way to do it. Some people may write a novel using their computer and call it a day; while others may write hundreds of Twitter haiku. The key to success is your imagination and your love of experimentation, exploration, and fun. Along the way, check out our regular prompts and guest posts for inspiration.
  2. Prepare to join the fray! Beginning on November 1 at 12:01 UTC, post your goals for the month on our Roster. This will help you connect with others in the DigiWriMo community and keep on track!
  3. There are no discussion forums anywhere! Because digital writing takes place everywhere on the web, so will our discussions. Plan to join our Friday Twitter chats using #digiwrimo, head over to our Facebook page, and visit this site often. All the Digital Writing Month writing prompts and special challenges will be posted here.
  4. Not all digital writing has to be public. But, if you want to share your work with others, do so by posting it on our Facebook page, on Twitter using #digiwrimo, or tag your blog posts with “digiwrimo”. That way, you’ll have all the audience you deserve for your grueling hours of digital brilliance. We’ll be curating content created on the web via the #digiwrimo Scoop.it topic.

Digital Writing Month 2014 is hosted by Sean Michael MorrisJesse Stommel, and Chris Friend, with the support of the Division of Continuing Studies at UW-Madison and Hybrid Pedagogy.
