The June Health Writing Challenge is all about the brain: we’re expanding on last month’s mental health focus.
We’re defining and explaining brain anatomy, diseases, symptoms and treatments. If you’ve never written about the brain before, this is a challenge for you!
You only need to complete one micro writing task a day in June. Do as many challenges as you can throughout the month, and feel free to share your results with your health writing friends and me!
Writing every day helps you to improve your confidence and writing skills. So what are you waiting for? Get started today, and view the challenge below
