Do You Have A Question?

This Week in Writing we’re celebrating Ask A Stupid Question Day and looking for things you want to know. So, what do you want to know?

I live by the adage that there’s no such thing as a stupid question. According to the scant research on National Today, a group of teachers in the 80s felt the same way and created National Ask A Stupid Question Day. It’s a day to give voice to everyone and encourage discussions that may otherwise go unexplored.

Here at The Writing Cooperative, we aim to give everyone a voice and hope you’re comfortable asking questions at any time. If not, then let today be a day of permission. There’s no question too big or too small. Please ask away! Granted, we may not have the answer, but we do try to help where we can.

That said, we also know that you have the answers to someone else’s questions. There’s power in community, and our 230k followers can learn from the answers only you can provide. Our October writing prompt invites you to answer questions others may have. What are those questions? Well, we want you to ask. Ask your friends what they need help with their writing, and then write an article based on the question.

Our submissions window is (almost) always open. We’re looking for stories of all aspects of writing, not just answers to questions. Though, some of the best writing advice comes as a result of answering someone’s question. So, please review our submission guide and send us your best ideas.

Plus, please feel free to send questions our way. What do you want to know? What can we help you with? Let us know by hitting reply. Not just today, of course, but any day. We’re here for you.
