Prompt Posts Come to PWB
I was recently saddened to read that Read Write Poem will be closing. I have enjoyed that site. It was always fun to interact with all the poets it brought together. I commend the poet who ran Read Write Poem, and understand why it is hard to find the time to keep a project like that going each week.
I encourage all poets to check out The Writer's Island on Tuesdays. You can use the prompt posted there to inspire a poem, and link to it for other poets to read.
Poets Who Blog will step in to try and fill the poetry void left on Thursdays in the blogosphere. Come here and leave a link to a poem you have written.
Poets Who Blog Prompt One: Comfort
Check out the link post on Jan. 10th
You will get a new prompt after that for the next Thursday. Feel free to leave a link to a poem that is not about the prompt, if you want.
At the end of the month, I will decide if the prompts should become a regular part of our site. Let your thoughts be known in the comments:
Would you take part in prompts?
Do you know a site that is doing poetry prompts on Thursdays already?
Does PWB need to fill the void or is there enough prompt sites?
I haven't ventured into doing prompts here before because other sites do them much more elaborately than I am willing to attempt, but I hate to see the wonderful exchange of poetry on Thursdays end. I'm actually very torn about if bringing prompts to PWB is the right direction for us. Let me know how you feel. If your name is on the blogroll you own this site so let your voice be heard.
