A Writer’s Playground–a place to find wordplay, writing prompts, reasons to celebrate, and monthly calendar activities for kids and those young at heart  “I is for Ignite–as in Lightning Strike and Write2Ignite!” by Linda Martin Andersen

This month I’m sharing photos and blog posts from A-Z.  I’m excited about trying something new.  I hope you’ll stop by often throughout the month.

Check out the participants for the April (2016) Challenge.  There are plenty to choose from http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/

I is for Ignite–as in Write to Ignite!

Write2Ignite holds an annual conference for Christian writers who write for children.  If you missed the April 1-2, 2016 conference held near Greenville, SC, perhaps you would like learn more about Write2Ignite here and join them in 2017.  Please tell them Linda Andersen sent you.



What “I” words come to mind for you? I hope you’ll share why they’re special to you.
