Saturdays! MGMT, Loverboy, Beck…they’ve all sung songs about Saturdays. And we love to sing along.

Now it’s your turn to pay homage to this special day of the week.  

Write an essay about something that really happened to you on a weekend, or make up a story about an outrageous weekend, or pen your own poem-song about the day. Whatever you do, make sure that Saturday as a day of the week, a theme, or even an epic, permeates your piece from start to finish.
