30 Pages in 30 Days

The Escapery’s Online Writing Adventure


What It Is:

30/30 is a virtual (online) adventure in which we will write together, every day for 30 days! 

In April we write 30 poems in 30 days.
In September we write 30 pages in 30 days. 

Every day, we will write a poem or page (sometimes less, sometimes more) aimed at discovering a new doorway, a new entrance, a new pathway, a new idea. 30 Openings. 30 possible new projects. 30 pages towards a project you've already started. 
We will begin with a page - A page is 300 words. A page is a poem or a new story idea or a scene or a novel beginning or a whole world!

How it works: 

Between 10pm and midnight, you receive a daily writing experiment in an email from Nancy or Carson, with a text or excerpt from a text that astounded us, or a text about poetry that inspired us, + a prompt + a deadline.

You have until MIDNIGHT the following day to send back a page. You can choose whether you want to share with the group (maximum accountability) or share with just us, your hosts. 

Repeat 30 times. 

On our final day, we will gather to read and celebrate our work. The goal is RAW SPONTANEOUS CREATION. 

That's it. 30 days. 30 PAGES. Yay. 

PS This is a virtual adventure, open to writers anywhere in the world, but the optional final party will be held in San Francisco. 

1. How much is this? 
This adventure is $1/day, or $30 in total. 

2. What am I getting? 
Daily reminders, daily inspiration, daily prompt, accountability, and a chance to celebrate after. 

3. Are you associated with NaPoWriMo or NaNoWriMo? 
Nope, but we respect their work. 30 pages a day is a great way to get in the rhythm for NaNoWriMo. 

4. How many writers participate?
This varies with each 30/30, but there are generally between 40-50 writers who join us each adventure. 

5. Where will the celebration be? 
TBD, but probably on the back patio of Old Devil Moon in San Francisco. In previous years, this has been an intimate reading celebration, featuring about 7-10 readers.

6. When is it?
We offer two 30/30 adventures each year, one in April and one September. In April, we write 30 poems in 30 days. In September we write 30 pages in 30 days.
