Friday Writing Prompts

A WRITING PROMPT FROM TREY MOODY, author of thought that nature

Each Friday we post one new writing prompt created by a Sarabande author. Prompts like this one are included in our online 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!

This week's prompt comes from Trey Moody, author of Thought that Nature.


Using the published journals or letters of someone who interests you, for a week or a month or a year, whenever you write a poem, graft their language from the same date on which you are writing into your poem. Inevitably, a rich conversation will emerge.
