Summer 2022 Language Challenge

Challenge will start on July 19th, 2022 and run until August 31st, 2022

It’s been a good minute since our last writing challenge, so lets ease back into it with a nice relaxed duration. To participate simply browse the prompts found in Summer 2022 Challenges and click on the pencil icon to write your response.

If you have a summer based prompt that you would like to add to the list, let us known in the comments below! Also feel free to talk about the challenge or your experienced down below!

I would also like to take a moment to thank @mari and @iamwalrus for taking their time to come up with prompts for this writing challenge!


TAKE IT A STEP FURTHER

If you haven’t already, please create a language log and keep track of your submissions in a singular post there. After you have received your corrections, write a summary explaining the happy little accidents you have made and what you can do to not repeat them!

Prompt suggestion

Summer is all about summer blockbusters! Did you get to see a movie or two this summer? Tell us all about it! If you haven’t seen a movie yet, which one would you like to see and why?

Oooo I like this prompt!

I actually started watching the entire James Bond filmography starting with Dr. No (1962). I’m currently halfway through Goldfinger (1964). It’s pretty interesting to see how special effects were done back then!
