Blank Pages Online Salon:
Saturday March 18th at 5PM (live Zoom)
Just because we're isolating doesn't mean we can't interact.
This month's prompt:
The Golden Shovel
(Created by Terrance Hayes in honor of Gwendolyn Brooks - read about it here)
How to write a Golden Shovel: Take a line from a poem or a piece of writing that is meaningful to you, and use each consecutive word of the line as the last word of each line or sentence you write. For example:
"Love is a battlefield" becomes
I go out looking for a fight, or for love,
it's all the same to me, as life is
but one atom glomming to another, or falling a-
way, each dawn a new dance on the battlefield
Doesn't have to be a poem!
Use the prompt or just bring your own one-page (300 words or so) piece of poetry, short fiction, memoir, scenery, imagery, or other general writiness to share at the Salon. We'll read to each other and discuss our work and talk about writing.ZOOM LINK
