The Time Is Now

Welcome to The Time Is Now. For even more inspiration, check out our Tumblr, Lines We Live By, a collection of excerpts from our favorite books.

Poetry Prompt
Read James Richardson's aphorisms or "ten-second essays." Pick one that resonates with you, and use the aphorism as an epigraph or starting off point for a poem.

Fiction Prompt

Revise a story by rewriting the story in the opposite order from which it first appeared. Start with the ending, and find your way back toward the original opening. Restructure the story so this new order makes sense.  

 

Creative Nonfiction Prompt

In literature of every genre, some of the most interesting reflection takes place in transit. Write about a time when you were in transit of some kind--on a train, plane, bus, or bike, in a car or even on foot. Write about where you were going and why, and focus on what you were thinking, seeing, and feeling as you moved.

 

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:

 
 
Merchants of Culture: The Publishing Business in the Twenty-First Century (Polity Press, 2010) by John B. Thompson
