Do you miss the Writing 201: Poetry course by the Daily Post? Then join this blogging challenge, Poetry 101 Rehab, that will provide your poetry fix!
How It Works
Each Monday at 01:00 pm UTC I will publish a poetry prompt along with my response to it. You are invited to answer the prompt, twist it or ignore it; write a poem of your own or share a poem by another author.
I would love to hear about your inspiration, your creative process or other poetry related thoughts, but this is no way obligatory. Nothing is obligatory in this challenge, the idea is to get together, talk poetry and have fun!
How You Can Join
Anyone can participate, anytime you want. Publish your poetry post and add a link to it to the InLinkz link-up below my post, or share your link in a comment. Use the tag Poetry 101 Rehab, so we can find each other in the Reader.
I will act as your hostess, and I’ll be here for you to reply your comments, read your verses, like and comment. While my blog is the starting point for the challenge, do visit fellow poets in the link-up and chat to them on their blogs!
The Prompt: Dark
Put the dress on
Turn the light off
Walk from the dark
In the street light
Stand under a lamp
Look out for men
Who will pay
This week’s prompt is DARK. My response to my own prompt is appropriately dark, however, you can go in an entirely different direction. Perhaps you’d like to meditate on the contrast of the dark and the light? Or you’d prefer to write about your favourite dark-coloured thing, like chocolate? You choose how you use and tweak this prompt! What will your take on the keyword DARK be? Blog about it in a poetry post and share your link below!
