You Can Write It

Welcome to You Can Write It, the web’s home for writing prompts and encouragement. Here, you will find all manner of things related to writing. We put up a free writing prompt every day (unless we forget).

We offer books designed to help you write. We compile links of other writing resources. We have writing contests (coming soon!). We want to build a community of writers.

Whether you’re a teacher inspiring your students, a creative writer looking to kickstart your next project or a PhD feeling stuck on your dissertation, we’re here to offer you resources, tools, strategies, and textual hugs to show that you can write it!
