Happy Poetry Month! Saturday, I posted that this month’s prompts would be all about persona poems.
Have you chosen your person?
If not, think of a person from history, or from your family history or a fictional character–even a formerly supporting fictional character (in novels, we have the examples of Wicked and Ahab’s Wife).
Now for the prompt:
From an article about the person or–better yet–a letter or article written by the person, choose 10 words. Now, write in the person’s voice, using those 10 words in the poem.
See? Really simple.
Tomorrow, I’ll post my favorite line from this first day’s poem, and I’ll invite you to do the same.
