Need a source of inspiration? Look no further. Each week, Embers Igniting shares a weekly “Spark”—a prompt meant to get ideas flowing and stretch your creative muscles. Artists and writers alike are encouraged to participate and respond to Sparks in any form they choose. We share our favorite responses on our social media pages to keep the inspiration rolling.
How to Participate
Simply check our Facebook or Twitter every Sunday for the weekly prompt, then email us your response (link to our email is under “follow us” in the sidebar to the right) during the week. Include “Spark Response: (Name of prompt)” in the subject line of your email so that we’ll be sure to see it. Responses must be received by midnight on the Friday following the Spark release. Then on Sunday, we share our favorite responses and release the new Spark. Have fun!
Make us see and feel time without a clock!
Send your response by midnight MST on Friday, 5/12. We’ll share our favorites on our Facebook and Twitter on Sunday, 5/14.
