Saturday: Poetry Prompts

1 Have you ever been really close to death? Use the emotions but write about something else. Use a piece of ironmongery in the work.

2 You've just won 4 Million on the lottery and you rang a friend. Her husband answered. She killed herself this morning. You must not mention money, lottery, win, death, suicide. Involve at least one object that now feels different to you.

3 How sad can you make 8-12 lines without using any actual "sadness words"?

4 Is there a famous poem you dislike? Write a poem taking it to the cleaners

5 He/She has gone (for good). Write a poem that pretends you actually don't mind (but you do)

6 Containing: Suez, Suet, America, Surprise
