We really believe in poetry – even if you don’t typically write it.

Poetry is a great way to hone your narrative voice. It’s a great way to learn expression and the art of the written word. Once you master poetry (or at least your own version of it), you can harness those skills to create beautiful scenes when tackling the novel.

Poetry is an interchangeable skill. We’d advise you to make the most of it.


The Purpose

This week’s prompt is all about painting a clear picture. We want you to focus on one thing and one thing only: stillness. Don’t stray from location to location, just focus on whatever the prompt draws your mind to.

Focus there and don’t dare take your eyes away.


The Prompt

Scenery/Vibe: Vast, open space. Lot’s of air and lots of freedom. Stillness.

Poem’s Message: It truly is the little things in life that free the soul the most.


ambience, atmosphere, autumn
