October Is Now
Whichever route we took, or how else we got here, there is one thing for certain. It’s October. It’d be odd to assume otherwise, though that’d would be fascinating in itself since we make up our own worlds.
In the month of September we saw something interesting at Misplaced Identity. We grew well over 600 people following the publication, reading the works that the authors put out there. We couldn’t be more grateful for this, especially during this time where we’re only figuring this whole thing out. What started as a place for sharing fictional stories, has grown to be home to some of the best works we’ve put out there.
This couldn’t be possible without the writers who dedicated their time to sharing their works. From soul-wrenching poems, to captivating fictional works, and brilliant non-fiction. So, in celebration of that, we’re showcasing their posts below, which you can check out at your own reading pleasure.

When Poetry Calls

Our premise is simple.
A post goes up every Friday with a prompt. And responses are submitted below the post as a normal response.
There will be a community tab on the publication, where these prompts will be found, in case you’d have missed one for the week.
To reference what a lune is, you can check out this definition, and example.
The lune is also known as the American Haiku. It was first created by the poet Robert Kelly (truly a great poet) and was a result of Kelly’s frustration with English haiku.
