Trifecta: Instructions | Teaching Digital Writing |

"Each Tuesday at 8:00 AM EST, a one-word prompt will be posted on our home page. The chosen word will come from the Merriam Webster's Online Dictionary. For the Trifecta Writing Challenge, we will always use the THIRD given definition. Please note the definition—we’re likely asking you to use the word in a different way than you typically do.


"You should write a creative response using the given word. You must use the word in your response, and you must use it correctly. Responses with alternate forms of the word (pluralized, different tense, etc.) will be disqualified. Your response can be no fewer than 33 and no more than 333 words."
