Poetry Prompt

Welcome to the month of December, PW writers and readers! Things are going to be a bit different around here this month. Mon, Wed, Fri, and Sun will all be fiction! Tues, Thurs, and Sat will all be poetry! There will be a Weekly Special posted every Monday, but there will not be a Weekend Challenge this month. What is going to make December fun is that you may use fiction prompts to write poetry and poetry prompts to write fiction! Or, use the prompts as is. Let’s get on with the prompting, shall we?

Today’s Poetry prompt

Write a ‘shut-in’ poem. Why are you shut-in? Do you want to be? What’s preventing you from going outside? Or, maybe you are only shut inside your own mind?

If you’d like, you may write a story up to 500 words based on this theme.

Poetry Form — any
Line Length — any
Restrictions — This will cause you a serious problem.

‘Restrictions’ are to challenge you as a writer. However, with everything else here at PW, use these prompts in any way that allows the creative juices to flow.

Write promptly and enjoy! And don’t forget about the Monthly Theme!
