Get ready for a month of prompts!
There are no rules, just guidelines, including the following suggestions:

  • Use the word-of-the-day in a poem.
  • Free associate to see where the word takes you.
  • Build a web of connected ideas and images to add to your quiver.
  • Change the word’s part of speech.
  • Use the word to build a compound word.
  • Brainstorm a list of rhyming words, slant rhymes, words that repeat the consonant sounds, words that repeat the vowel sounds.
  • Explore the word’s synonyms and antonyms.
  • Dig through a Thesaurus or mine the adjacent words in a dictionary.
  • Combine words on consecutive days and work two or more into a single poem.

Short or long; formal, blank, or free verse; topical or fanciful or anything in between—your choice. Wind up your imagination and let it spin.
A poem a day? Go for it! Start writing Thursday, March 17, and to plan share your work at a Zoom Slam on Wednesday, April 20—details and link to follow.
