Create a Poem
Writing Prompts for Poets (Creative Keepsakes #21)
Connecting you to the legacy of poetry, this journal allows you to dive right into writing poems—no matter your level of experience.
Poems can be anything born of words—descriptions of random thoughts, simple stories, or fleeting feelings. Create a Poem offers 200 exercises comprised of a topic that triggers an idea paired with 10 word associations designed to help you think about how each relates to the topic or any connected experiences you’ve had in your own life. The prompts are organized in an easy-to-follow structure and each includes ample space for writing. A variety of prompts are included, such as:
Write a poem about...Tastes
10 Word Associations: Memories, scents, culture, perception, flavors, mood, bias, kitchen, colors, sounds

Jot down whatever comes to mind: disjointed thoughts and phrases or internal dialogue are all encouraged, these need not be complete sentences. Now, you’re ready to put it all together in a lyrical masterpiece of your own. There are no wrong answers; each poem is unique and personal to the writer. Start your poetry journey today with Create a Poem.
