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 Michael Homolka, author of Antiquity.
Fool Me Once
Think of a place you know well but that has always made you feel uneasy. This will be the setting of your poem. Construct a list of ten words that capture this place. Then write a poem without using any of these words.
