April 20, 2018: Poetry Writing Prompt – Liz Larew

This poetry writing prompt submitted by Liz Larew

“‘Poems come out of wonder, not out of knowing’.  Writers often struggle with the blank page.  A clean slate can motivate, but it can also scare us.” Write about the wonder of the blank page, how it motivates or scares you or both; what do you wonder about your writing and why do you write poetry anyway?

Quotes from Kwame Alexander and Lucille Clifton from Out of Wonder, Poets Celebrating Poets, by Kwame Alexander with Chris Colderley and Marjory Wentworth.
