Writers Spotlight


This week's spotlight's tag is "Forever procrastinating on wp tbh" and I'll say we're happy they are here! This week's spotlight not only writes great stories all the time, but reads and comments on other's posts too! These are the kind of people we’re looking for, and we need YOUR help!

We rely on you amazing members to help us find the next spotlight, so please! Be on the lookout for the next person you’d like to see in this post, and let us know HERE.


subtlesneeze is this week's spotlight writer. You can ask them a question by tagging them with "/u/subtlesneeze" in your comment. Subreddit: /r/astoriawriter. Check them out!


How is a spotlight chosen? If you find a writer who hasn’t been in the limelight yet, has multiple decent entries (at least 6 or more) over the past few months, and you think deserves a spotlight, send us a modmail with your recommendation! We’ll add them to the list and with luck, they’ll make it up here.

This Week's Suggested Topic

What is your writing process?

Challenge: Find that WP that excites you and try a writing process that is different from your norm - It may surprise you!
