Writers Carnival Post-a-Palooza is a weekend of madness and mayhem. The order of the weekend is to challenge your quick wits and jump through literary hoops. Why? Because writing to task in short bursts is great for your creativity. We should all write by the seat of our pants now and again, and the epitome of this is the ‘Power Hour’ sessions.

What is a Writer’s Carnival ‘Power Hour’? One hour, four quick prompts which may take the form of Flash Fiction, Dialogue only prose, Poetry, anything goes. Does your attempt have to be literary genius? Of course not. Just try it for fun, throw caution to the wind and ‘power’ your way through.
