Wednesday’s Writing Prompt
Written by Michelle Junot
Last week, we asked our Facebook friends to submit their own writing prompts. This is one from Mary Stone Dockery:
Find a poem written by another person. One you love. Erase every other line and fill in the blanks, finishing the sentences. When you finish, go through and erase the rest of the original lines, and fill in the rest of the blanks to fit with your words. You will have a whole new poem!
Mary’s chapbook Aching Buttons (dancing girl press) was published in January 2012. She is the co-founding editor of Stone Highway Review, and co-edits Blue Island Review, in addition to reading for Gemini Magazine and writing mini reviews for Portal del Sol.
