It’s been a year since the last Vegan MoFo, and I’m sure some of you have been eagerly awaiting news of this year’s event! Well, the good news is you’ve not missed it – and you still have two months to prepare. VeganMoFo 2016 will be held in the month of November. We hope this gives you the chance to explore different seasonal foods, embrace cooking for the holidays, and share with the rest of us your wonderful creations.
This year, we’re giving you three options for participating:
1) Weekly themes (which will be listed below!). You can interpret these themes whichever way you like, and use them to inspire your posts!
2) Daily prompts (which will be also listed below). These tie in with the weekly themes, but give you more specific ideas to follow. You can use all of them, or just a few!
3) Choose your own theme. You don’t need to follow any of our themes if you don’t want to – come up with your own and use that instead! So long as it’s vegan, everything goes.
You can also participate on whichever platform you like – blog, Twitter, Instagram or Facebook, all participation is encouraged, just follow the #veganmofo and #vgnmf16 hashtags.
More information will be released soon about sign ups, and other exciting bits, but in the meantime – get your cooking brain on!
The themes and daily prompts are listed below. Remember – you can follow these as closely or as loosely as you like (or even choose your own). These are just ideas to get your creative juices running!
