WFP Winner & Your new Weekly Prompt for this week:

Cultural Observations
Week 18: Ends 7/21/10

A mans feet should be planted in his country, but his eyes should survey the world

Remember have fun and be creative!

Your new Weekly Prompt:

Week 15: Ends 6/30/10
The Other Side of Words

When we write, we make unconscious choices about the meaning of words. We tend to use the most familiar interpretation of a word without ever thinking about it. This week's prompt is meant to help you find the other side of words. With that in mind, write a poem that:

Uses five of the following words:...

Eszperente - Eh?

Eszperente - Eh?
Have fun writing an Eszperente poem. It’s is a playful "language", where the only vowel used is "e". A lipogrammatic form, all others vowels are excluded. No made-up words are allowed. *Tip: mostly for children so your imagination can run wild.

Unexpectedly, you’re not permitted or able to do the thing that you love the most: a favorite hobby, camping or writing for eg? What you would do instead? Consider the cause of this inability/disability and how you would deal with, or overcome it. Use your imagination and have fun!!

The Prompt:


It's time for our first round of Limericks at PS Version 2!! For those members not familiar with Version 1, we would have Limericks as the prompt a few times a year . . . and that's not going to change!! Be clever, be witty, follow the traditional Limerick meter and above all, keep it clean. Nothing we'd read on a bathroom wall, please. Other than that, have fun and be creative!!


And please take the time to read this week's Weekly Featured Poem,

The Prompt:

Imagine that you've recently moved into a new house/apartment/flat/condo/etc. At some time during the first few days of exploration of your new home, you find a loose floorboard or a hidden panel of some kind, sending you on a mysterious adventure that reveals the last residents of your new home were really . . .

Week 5: Ends 4/21/10

Night Moves
"Liponym Form"
It's a very dark and stormy night. Unusual noises, sights and aromas abound. Write your perceptions in a constrained write. The Liponym is to avoid clichéd "storm" words: thunder, lightning, boom, crash, bang, etc.
Have fun, or share your fears, and be creative!!
by Harklight - Comments: 0 - Views: 336

Week 4: Ends 4/14/10
Step By Step
Magically, you are "footwear" worn by someone of your choice. Personify yourself: where you go, what you see and hear - whose feet you pinch or comfort.
The possibilities are endless.
Be original: SCUBA diver's boots to Gran's slippers.
Remember, have fun and be creative!!
