Below, I've listed fifteen random poetry prompts, some I've used, and some I've never used. Some I made up off the top of my head; others were taught to me by various teachers and writers over the years.
If you're a regular visitor to my blog, let me apologize for my lack of posts. I've no other excuse save this: I teach college composition, and I've been doing a *lot* of grading.
If one of the prompts below leads to a particularly interesting poem, please feel free to send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd love to read it.
If you enjoy this kind of thing, be sure to visit Robert Lee Brewer's website, Poetic Asides. A He posts weekly poetry prompts and advice for writers.
Drop me a line below if you have any ideas for writing prompts.
O for a muse of fire,
