Writing Prompt: Write a poem.
When I was a preteen, I wrote poetry all the time. Some of it was good and some of it was not so good. When I was in the 7th grade, I won a poetry contest. Shortly after, it stopped writing poetry. I believe I stopped because I was getting closer to deciding about college and possible career paths and, was constantly discouraged from pursuing a writing career. It was not until my final year of college, I had an assignment to write a poem for my creative writing class. My that poem was chosen by my professor to be included in that year’s Southern Literary Festival.
I believe all writers have a poem inside them. Use this writing prompt to get it out.
