Creativity invitation

We’re really excited to share that the creative prompts (and a few more surprises) in February will come from our friends at London Writers' Salon! 

“London Writers' Salon is on a mission to help every human realise their creative potential through writing. We provide a home for writers around the world to grow a writing practice, refine their writing craft, build creative lives, and find creative friends. We do this through daily Writers' Hour live writing sessions, Expert Workshops, Courses & Interviews, and a supportive Creative Community.”


For complimentary access to their Writers Hour, an hour-long virtual writing sprint, held every Monday-Friday, visit this page made especially for this 64 Million Artists community! 



To listen to the creative prompt below, please use the Userway Accessibility plugin in the left-hand corner of the screen. If you need any further assistance, please contact [email protected]

In the poem “Invitation,” Mary Oliver invites us to pause in our busy day to listen to the goldfinches sing:

Oh do you have time
to linger
for just a little while
out of your busy

and very important day
for the goldfinches
that have gathered
in a field of thistles

This week, write an invitation. Suggest a behavior, activity, action, or way of being and invite your reader to participate. Entice your reader to linger, listen, love, or simply to join you for breakfast.
