The Prompt: Find a friend. Decide together exactly what kind of poem you are both going to write, from the subject matter, to the form, to any details you think are relevant. Then, write your poems separately. Share. Marvel at how original you can be even with the same idea and parameters.
The prompt: try writing in a form you’ve never tried before. If you can’t think of one or find one that interests you, try an alphabet poem.
