September 5th’s one line poem prompt is ready!

With thanks to Michael Stalcup

We encourage you to write as many responses as you like, but we will only publish your first response in Chalkboard. We’d love you to share the rest with other publications — it will help more readers and writers find us. If you wish to have your piece published here on Chalkboard, please ensure it is a one liner.

Your weekly one line poem prompt has been published.

This week’s theme is: Would you rather…?

You can find Michael’s prompt piece here:

Your Turn

THEME: WOULD YOU RATHER…

Share your own one-line poem on the theme as a response to Michael’s post, or write a stand-alone piece if you prefer. Tag your piece “One Line”. If you write a stand-alone poem, be sure to leave a link in the response section for WOULD YOU RATHER
FYI: Responding to this or any Chalkboard prompt adds you to the prompt notification list.

We will be opening up the queue for new prompts by mid-September. Looking forward to seeing what prompts you all come up with next!
