Fun for Friday: February 2022 Writing Prompts

It’s nearly February, so it’s time for some new writing prompts!

This month, I’ve separated out each column to be a person, a place, and a thing, as inspired by a recent “Poetry Thunderdome” event I took place in, where those categories were sourced from the audience, and then we wrote poems very quickly based on the words they gave us.

Of course, some of the words included here CAN be other parts of speech as well, and if you want to interpret them as verbs or whatever else, you’re more than welcome to! I just like the simplicity of taking three nouns and seeing what they inspire!

Check back on the last Friday of each month (or occasionally the first day of a new month, when that falls on a Friday) for my History That Never Was writing prompts!
