October #MonthlyWritingChallenge: Disruption
What is the #MonthlyWritingChallenge?
The #DailyWritingChallenge ran for 100 days during lockdown, initiated by Hannah Wilson, Co-Founder of #DiverseEd. Many educators found their voice and started blogging to help process their experiences during the global pandemic, lockdown and school closures.
As schools reopened the bloggers asked to continue the writing habit but at a slower pace, so the #MonthlyWritingChallenge was born, launching in September with the theme of #Journeys.
To get involved tune in to @Ethical_Leader on Twitter on the last Sunday of each month to find out the monthly theme. Then write and publish 500 words on the theme for that month and remember to share your blog with the #MonthlyWritingChallenge hashtag on Twitter and tag @ethical_leader, @diverseed2020 and @teaglo
October’s theme is Disruption.
We look forward to reading and featuring your reflections here on the blog and in the teaglo feed.
