POETRY PROMPT

by Kari Hawkey

Sucks to your assmar.  Write a poem about your favorite book, artwork, or even your favorite movie.  Let’s get ekphrastic fantastic.  Use your imagination and use the work as inspiration for your poem.

FICTION PROMPT

by Redd Williams

Write about a conversation between a mother and a daughter. The mother is trying to give some womanly advice to her daughter and the daughter is trying to encourage her mother to get back into the dating game. Determine the ages of the mother and the daughter, decide what advice the mother is giving and come up with an ulterior motive behind the daughter’s encouragement in establishing a new love life for her mother.

NONFICTION PROMPT

by Lizi Gilad

“Summertime, oh, summertime, pattern of life indelible, the fadeproof lake, the woods unshatterable, the pasture with the sweet fern and the juniper forever and ever, summer without end.”- E.B. White, from Once More to the Lake

Which season is your season? Set yourself free to roam in the season you love most.  Write a list of the scents, sounds, sights, and sensations that make the season what it is to you.

SCREENWRITING PROMPT

by Kari Hawkey

Looking for a fight.  Recall the last argument you had (with a friend or loved one, or even someone you don’t particularly care for) and write down the words you wish you had said.  Write a scene incorporating both real dialogue and what you wish had been your reply.  Not only can this help your writing… but also it’s cheaper than therapy.

We do not need to proselytize either by our speech

or by our writing. We can only do so really with our lives.

Let our lives be open books for all to study.

~ Mahatma Gandhi
