We are now a Private but Visible Facebook Group. This helps us thrive as a more intimate and focused group where we hope people feel more supported when they post, especially those doing so for the first time. It also helps those who want to publish their haiku/other writing in journals that ask that their work has not been shared in a public group. Thank you for supporting these changes.
We teeter on the brink of almost making 10000 members which I am beyond excited about. My passion for creating an invitational space in which people can create, connect and thrive seems to be striking a real chord with everyone across the world. I think, as many of you have commented before, TDH appeals by having a daily prompt that is easy to engage with that is accessible for diverse groups either newbies or experienced or returning writers too and can fit into busy schedules or last as long as you want it too. My interview about TDH with Bambo Soyinka the director of Paper Nations goes into more detail about TDH and its mission so do please read if you haven’t already.

Thank you to Arthur Chappell for suggesting a new thread which started two weeks ago and is now after polling our new Weekly Photo Prompt. Do keep adding photographs to our image bank in Announcements.
Here is our regular two weekly round-up of themes and prompts for you to enjoy all over again, showcase your favourites, share new and encourage friends who might not be able to engage with TDH on social media to do so here.
