June’s optional theme for the NEW! Erotic Poetry Challenge is “Movies.” It’s a broad theme…intentionally, because I want it to be wide open with possibility. If, however, that is TOO broad for you, and you need more guidance. I will get more specific with a prompt that will be release each Wednesday.
Here are the basics:
The Erotic Poetry Challenge will be a MONTHLY CHALLENGE with an optional THEME and optional weekly prompts (just to give you ideas). But keep in mind:
–you can link-up when you want (one time or many)
–you can ignore the theme and prompts altogether and write whatever the hell you desire
–you do not have to be a serious or practiced poet – please do not feel intimidated by this prompt (every writer is welcome!)
–you can write any form of poetry you want…or make up your own forms
–poetry does NOT have to rhyme (just in case you needed to hear that)
The MONTHLY THEME will be fairly general. But I will provide a prompt each week on Wednesday, if you need it. You can write to each prompt and link up all the poems you write. Maybe one prompt will work for you, but the others won’t…and that’s fine, too. You might also just want to write your own damn poems the way you see fit (screw the theme and prompts – you’re a rebel…and that’s cool).
It would be nice if you could use the badge below and link back to link-up page. That way people who read your work might click on over and read other people’s poems, too (since that’s sort of the point of a meme, eh?). Commenting on other people’s work is also awfully nice.
Themes & Prompts
prompt 1: “Write a poem that is inspired by a film.”
prompt 2: “Write a poem that is inspired by the soundtrack from a film. If you want to get specific…focus the title of one of the songs or a section of the lyrics. Or, you could just play the soundtrack and see where it takes your mind…and your pen.”
prompt 3: “Take a scene or dialogue from a film and work it into a poem.”
Remember…you DON’T have to follow the theme or the prompts. They are simply there to provide guidance and ideas. And if you decide to follow the prompts, you don’t have to do them in any particular order.
You can link up your poems all month (one or several). Link party will be open from today until June 30.
