By Stephanie Valente

Here are some prompts to give you inspiration:

Writing Prompt #1

Writing Prompt #2
Let's ignore line breaks today. Where could a poem travel to as a prose piece or a wandering paragraph? Need some inspo? Check out Jamaica Kincaid's Girl.

Writing Prompt #3

Write about a secret message. Or, just tell us one.

Writing Prompt #4
Write about a missed connection. Romantic or platonic. You decide.
