Happy Friday, all! And happy half-way point of Na/GloPoWriMo 2022!
Our featured participant for the day is Voyages des Mots, which provides us with a moving response to Day Fourteen’s “opening scene” prompt.
Today’s featured online journal is Atticus Review, which has been publishing online since 2011. Among their recently published poems, I’ll point you to Meghan Sterling’s “A,” and Martha Silano’s “If We Were Not So Single Minded.”
Finally, here’s our daily (optional) prompt. This one may seem counter-intuitive, but today I’d like to challenge you to write a poem about something you have absolutely no interest in. This isn’t quite the same, I think, as something you’re indifferent to. For example, I have absolutely no interest in investment strategy. Anytime anyone tries to tell me about it, I want to put my fingers in my ears and go “lalalalalala.” My brain tries to shut down! This is honestly kind of funny, and I think this prompt has value precisely because it invites you to investigate some of the “why” behind resolutely not giving two hoots about something.
