During the summer of 2022, Carteret Writers launched our very first virtual writing event – the Summer Doldrums Challenge. From July 23 through August 6, we delivered daily writing prompts, and our members as well as a number of guests delivered their literary responses. By the end of the challenge, we had more than 100 golden lines of prose and poetry submitted by more than 30 writers. Golden Lines is a compilation of some of the most lyrical, strange, enlightening, and powerful pearls of literary brilliance we received. Thank you to all the participants who agreed to let us share your talent! We hope you love the results.
