Creative Writing: How to Put Your Writing Skills to Work & Give Back to the Community

Sometimes you feel the need to write without any ulterior motives or monetary gains. You just want to share your talents to benefit others. Here are some suggestions:

  • Help a person whose second language is English. Fill in a job application or write a letter.
  • Decorate with words or quotations. Use stencils, vinyl stick on letters or wallpaper borders to enhance people's lives. Put them on school walls, libraries or teen centers. Get everyone involved with the process.
  • Put a pamphlet together for a nonprofit or edit your club's newsletter.
  • Compose greeting cards. Write an encouragement, get well or friendship card that shows your care and concern. Add your own individual touches or graphics. Distribute them to nursing homes, veterans or children's wards in hospitals.
  • Write a poem or short story for that special person in your life. It can be for a memorable occasion or just any ordinary day.
  • Make people aware of diverse ways of thinking. Send your opinions to websites or newspapers. If you are unhappy with your tax appraisal or upset about the demise of your theater district, write about it.

So, grab a block of time and create a writing opportunity. It’s a win-win situation.

I love this, Marge Jesberger ! Especially the writing opinions - today more than ever, we need to give voice to how we feel about the things happening around us. Thank you for these great ideas on how writing can make a difference. Words matter!

I was just telling the hubs that I wanted to write an editorial about the many beautification projects happening in town . It’s a win for our community when businesses invest in sprucing up their establishments. I’m proud of our little city. And I’m going to write about it.
Thank you very much for such an interesting post on creative writing. As a writer, it was interesting for me to read it and bring out something useful for myself, but for people who have weak concepts in writing, it is worth clarifying that there are even more practical ways to learn how to write, the first thing to start with is to study types of writing, I started with narrative essays since for me the genre of narration was the most interesting among the rest. Do not forget about brainstorming and various tables on which you can write out your thoughts in a limited time, this also helps. After a couple of years of study, I got too analytical essay topic ideas, which seemed to me to be one of the most boring types of essays at the time. I liked the moment to share my writing successes with everyone because I practiced this, but if you are a vulnerable person, choose people closer to you so that their prompts do not offend you.
