On January 2, 2013, this blog announced a brand new concept for readers of Write Nonfiction in November—comparing the month-long November nonfiction writing challenge to a writing marathon. To help nonfiction writers train for the November writing marathon, we created a series of nonfiction writing prompts known formally as the “I Know I Can” Write Nonfiction in November Training Program. Today begins our second month of our writing marathon training program. Are you ready to find out about the February theme and dive into the next writing prompt? Good!
The theme for February is Black History Month. This is a great theme to tackle in nonfiction writing because it forces us to research historical facts, figures, and anecdotes to help us put together a perspective on contemporary issues concerning African Americans.
