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

Write a poem that addresses a past or future version of yourself. Write in the second-person singular. Reassure a younger self, send warnings to a future self, or ask questions to which you don't know the answers.

 
Fiction Prompt

Compose a story by making a fairy tale or old folktale contemporary. Aim to retain the basic plot of the original tale, but have the characters' tensions and fears reflect twenty-first-century encounters and conflicts. For an added challenge, offer an alternate ending or tell the narrative from an unexpected perspective.

 

Creative Nonfiction Prompt

Compose a table of contents for your life. Include titles, subtitles, sections, and chapters that outline a period--or the entirety--of your life. Once you've finished the table, write a brief summary for each section.
