Yes, we know that is a tall order, so we will be posting prompts throughout the month to get the creative sparks flying. The point is to reset your creative muse, make writing an everyday a habit. Challenge yourself to write a poem whether it be short haiku or a long lyric poem commit yourself and get writing!
Check out our blog for the prompts, commentary and other tid-bits as we go through the month.
If you are a regular at the WordParty, feel free to send your responses to our prompts to firstname.lastname@example.org We would love to see what writing comes out of the challenge! Bring your poems with you to read at our open-mic on April 17.
To get us started, let’s begin with this prompt:
- Go to your local bookstore and find the most unfamiliar and strangest section. (Finance? Science? Cooking?)
- Take notice the covers of the books, titles, any photos that catch you.
- Use this as a jumping off point to write a poem about something unfamiliar.
- For example, the weight-loss book with the read and yellow letters. Or, Suze Orman’s startled eyes which promise to get your finances in order.
