For this week, I gave you the word “core” and 450 words to explore any meaning of the word in a work of creative non-fiction/memoir or fiction. Link up below. The collection closes Saturday 11:59pm EDT. We’re looking forward to reading, and we hope you are, too. Remember, even if you don’t feel comfortable with concrit, pointing out something specific that you enjoyed is meaningful, as well.
