  • Explore the photos uploaded with #summerartfulness for inspiration. Then spend some time engaged in creative writing connected to those images. Share your favorite line or short excerpt in the “comments” section of the inspiration post.
  • Take a photo of your own copy of Artfulness in locations you travel to this summer. Add carousel photos to capture some of the highlights of the location and post to social media with #summerartfulness. Be sure to tag us @aexandritepublishing
  • Upload a series of setting-based photos to social media #summerartfulness, being sure to tag us @alexandritepublishing In the caption, provide a writing prompt based on those photos for your followers to write to and encourage them to share their favorite line or short excerpt in the “comments” section of your post.

Bring your friends along for the ride!
