Writing Prompt for Wednesday 11/30/16

Your Daily Writing Prompt

Poetry Writing Prompts

This week’s prompts focus on expanding your poetry repertoire. Experimenting with different forms of poetry can be fun and a great way to express yourself. For this week, I recommend writing by hand only.

Every Sunday we kick off a new theme for our daily writing prompts. You can read Sunday’s post here: https://www.lawritersgroup.com/writing-prompt-112716/

Today’s Writing Prompt

Today we are working with one of my favorites: narrative poems. Narrative poems tell a story, and they don’t have to rhyme, they don’t have to rhyme and can be any length. They don’t even have to look sparse like poems often do with line and stanza breaks. Charles Bukowski and Edgar Allen Poe both wrote many narrative poems. The idea here is to have a beginning, a middle, and an end.

Write a narrative poem today.

I’d love to read your poems!

You can post your daily writing exercises in the comments section of the blog post if you’d like or you can post on our Facebook group. Or you can keep them to yourself. It’s all fine with me.

Go forth and write,
