Writing Prompts

We’ve found writing prompts to be helpful as they trigger inspiration and make us practice skills outside of our usual writing area. The piece can be a sentence, a paragraph or however long the writing muse dwells.

Group members attending each meeting brainstorm and agree on the writing prompt for the next meeting. 


July 10: The most annoying thing

June 12: The smell of hamburgers cooking…

May 15th: Write about an encounter with law enforcement.

April 10th: “Inspired By Actual Events” (use a story from the news or history books to inspire a short work of fiction)

March 6th: Eavesdropping on a conversation

February 6th: Winter Day

January 2nd: How Are You?
