Friday Writing Prompts

A Writing Prompt from Simone Muench

Each Friday we post one new writing prompt created by a Sarabande author. Prompts like this one are included in our Reader's Guides along with discussion questions and suggested reading to accompany each title. So if you can't wait a week for the next prompt, visit our Reader's Guide page to find them all in one place!

Today's prompt comes from Simone Muench, author of Wolf Centos.

Exercise: Opening Lines

Using the example of Anne Marie Rooney’s poem “Last Index: Index of first lines” (which can be found here), create an index poem of first or last lines that are either a) appropriated à la cento, or b) that are purely invented.
