Prompts and ponies

Karen Craigo’s Better View of the Moon has been featuring prompts all month; when it is not Poetry Month, Karen writes about other topics of interest to writers.

Marty McConnell’s Fierce Voice, which features specific prompts throughout the year.  Sign up for the mailing list and inspiration will be sent right to your mailbox.

If you are on Twitter, consider following The Daily Poet (@DailyPoet2) which has been tweeting prompts.  The site is run by Martha Silano and Kelli Russell Agodon from Two Sylvias Press, which also has published The Poet Tarot and The Daily Poet.

Or, maybe the pictures below will get your poetry ideas flowing. If nothing else they may make you smile.  These were sent to me by Laura Rodley, who is a frequent contributor to this site. She is a freelance writer from Massachusetts who often writes for Country Folks.  Check out Laura’s poem “Today” which appeared March 5 on New Verse News (another site that may inspire you)

Peace, love, and solace
