Prompt #1 PICS
*Choose a photo from the stack (below) that you want to work with.
Make a list of what you see in the image. What you see doesn’t have to be explicitly depicted (i.e. feelings).
Write about the image as if you’ve known it forever. Maybe try explaining it to someone like you really need them to understand it.
Write to completely dismantle the image. Try to untangle/unravel.
*Find someone to switch pictures with, or get a new one from the stack.
With your new image, repeat Part 1.
Write backwards toward the image.
Write about the image in a way that’s wrong, a way that makes no sense.
Feel free to repeat prompts on either image.
Using what you’ve written today, make as many two-line poems as you can.
Prompt #2 HOMEWORK
Reflect on what you’ve written over the last few weeks. Choose one poem or piece of text to record yourself reading (up to 3 minutes). Additionally, choose a song, or make a field recording that somehow supports/speaks to your writing. Send your audio recordings/songs to firstname.lastname@example.org, in order to be included in a special audio component of the poetry club publication!
