Friday Writing Prompts

A Writing Prompt from Annette Binder

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 Friday Writing Prompt comes from L. Annette Binder, author of Rise (2012).
