Writers, time to roar!
It’s prompt time, and I’m thinking about BFoundAPen’s fierce story last week set in the Roaring Twenties. I’m tired of this pandemic — tired of fear, melancholy, and isolation. I’m even tired of patience.
How about you?
I’m ready to roar with joy! Let’s set pen to paper with fierce abandon as we look ahead to better days.
Let’s Roar With Fierce Joy!
P&P’s new two-week prompt starts today
The new prompt is “Roar With Fierce Joy.” Fiction, nonfiction, poetry — you name it. Let’s see your inner lion or your hidden kitten. However you take this prompt — and I hope some of you surprise me something completely unexpected — let’s start writing.
New to Prism and Pen?
Here are our submissions guidelines.
Alert! We now accept artist interviews and reviews (book, film, music, etc) of queer-focused art, and stories about art and artists.
Stories so far —
We will march and dance and roar Until the walls fall down. We will fight for this is war, And we will win the crown.
