weeklong musicwriting soulcycle class for JUSTICE

of course sputnik deleted a lot of this but welcome to soulcycle. let's make this short because fuck. Every day (and today about 10 hours early) I will post a prompt. Your task is to write a response of exactly 100 words, formatted with "Artist - Song Title" (the subject of every piece is nominally A Song, though you can just talk about one part of it) up top and then the 100 words below. I will check that the piece is 100 words by putting the text body (but NOT the song information up top) into wordcounter.com and then we will really see who's boss. Each entry I judge to be 1) a response to the prompt and 2) not total nonsense/the same word over and over, etc. is entered into the daily contest and earns $.50 simply for being posted. At the end I will round up all of these entries and pick the best one and that one (along with any other where the person says they’d like my feedback on their writing, though I may not even get to it that week) will receive feedback/praise from me and that winner will earn $1 additional. At the end of the seven days (you may participate in all seven days or just one or anything in between but NOT none you dirty dirty…) I will pick the best overall performer and that person will earn $10 for the week.

The secret is that none of this money is going to you. It is all going to the Brownsville Community Justice Center, which essentially revolves around the grand project of trying to keep young people in the Historically Troubled neighborhood of Brownsville, Brooklyn out of jail--both advising the kids already in trouble and pleading with judges to try some other shit maybe AND giving young people not in that position fun and horizon-expanding ways to help avoid that kind of situation entirely, e.g. giving them a literal space in which to do STEM stuff (some kid collaborated with BCJC to make a VR recreation of Brownsville itself), volunteer in community service, music production and digital media. Brownsville is the neighborhood I teach high school seniors in so what the Center does means a lot to me and it's cool to see just how organically those efforts sprouted from the brownsville community itself.

to ensure flawless delivery I will be literally walking the envelope of a piddling (UNLESS?!?!) amount of cash to the building itself and I'll take a literal photograph of the eagle landing. folks it doesn't get any better than this. that will happen 9/15/23. I will count the money in a video and hand it to those legends. Here is the structure; THIS IS WHERE THE PROMPTS WILL BE:

AUGUST 24 1:30AM-AUGUST 25 12 NOON: PROMPT #1
