The Time Is Now, so use this week's writing prompts to begin a new story, poem, or essay. Let's go!

POETRY PROMPT
Take a poem you feel is finished, and divide the poem in half. Write two new poems by filling in those two halves.
 
CREATIVE NONFICTION PROMPT
Choose an incident from your past--it could be an ordinary occurrence, such as a family dinner--or a significant event, such as an achievement or a mishap. Write about it from your perspective, then write about it from the perspective of someone else who experienced it with you--a friend, sibling, or parent.

 

FICTION PROMPT

Write a scene for a story, using third-person narration, that opens with your main character having just done something despicable. Despite what he or she has done, find a way in writing the rest of the scene to make your character sympathetic without letting him or her off the hook.  

 

THE BEST BOOKS FOR WRITERS
Each week we recommend a book--a newly published title or an invaluable classic--that will help you on your writing journey. This week's pick:
 
   
Contemporary Creative Nonfiction: The Art of Truth (Oxford University Press, 2000) by Bill Roorbach
