April 17, 2018: Poetry Writing Prompt – Lenny DellaRocca

This poetry writing prompt submitted by Lenny DellaRocca

Take titles from Facebook posts and use it for a list poem, i.e. a recent post was “15 Things You Didn’t know Your Hair Dryer Could Do”. Then make up your own things it can do OR list things it CAN’T do. Run with it– for example- 1. Turn the radio off in the car next to you at a stop light 2. See through walls. 3. Make strangers fall in love with you… and so on. Expand on each item to fill out the ideas. Then take the best lines and make them the titles of new poems. Etc.
