Write. Share. Give.

It’s the 10th day of the March 2023 Slice of Life Story Challenge, which means two things: we’ve officially hit the double digits and we’re almost a third of the way through the month!

Write your slice of life story.
Share the link to it on the daily call for slice of life stories.
Give at least three other Slicers comments on their blog posts.


Have you checked out our slicer-led workshops yet? This year, we are excited to offer a new initiative. All slicers are invited to come to Slicer Workshops. Tammy Evans and Fran McCrackin host a workshop tonight at 5:00pm ET. Melanie Meehan and Amy Spitzer are hosting another one on Sunday morning at 9:00am ET. Please email Tammy ( or Melanie ( if you are interested in joining one of the groups. You can find more information about these workshops here.

Today marks our second Multi-Lit Friday of the month. This is an opportunity for participants who write in other languages to share their slice of life stories in another language. Be sure to mention if you’re participating in Multi-Lit Friday when you leave the teaser and link to your post today.


Some slices capture just a moment in time with details that make the reader feel like they’re experiencing the moment themselves. Writer Terje Äkke demonstrates this in her post “You Can Do It,” a story about her return to ice skating for the first time in a few years. (Terje is also one of our Multi Lit Friday writers, sharing pieces in Estonian and recording the audio for readers to enjoy as shown in this post from last Friday!)

Every March we welcome writers from all over the world to the Slice of Life Story Challenge. This March, we are thrilled to share a community that spans 6 continents. Special thanks to co-author Leah Koch for creating this visual map for us!

This map shows participants from around the world: 221 in the United States, 11 in Canada, 1 in South America, 5 in Europe, 12 in Asia, 4 in Africa, and 3 in Australia.

      1. Thanks for this. I saw it while at the airport and just couldn’t rectify while enroute. But it’s a new day and I figured it out. Kind of a funny Ted Lasso moment. Hahaha
