By Hand is a monthly prompt focused on freeing our words by using our hands. This month, we’re exploring the idea of pure play with Megan Willome.
Think of a secret you want or need to preserve. Put it in a bottle or can. Will it go in easily? This is poetry. We don’t need to know the actual secret.
Have you ever found a bottle worth keeping? Have you ever collected a whole colorful line? Put it in poetry.
Can you put bottles and cans in your poems? Join us for our new Bottled & Canned theme, and a brand new playlist and poetry prompt.
Writing short fiction is a marvelous playground for the poet to develop the essential ingredients of great poems. Try your hand at our “encounter” prompt today.
