Write a Letter – Your Weekly Poetry Prompt 2/4/2022

Our prompt this week is to Write a Letter.

Decide who you will write to and assume they will never see the letter. Start out by specifically addressing them and then work your way from prose into whatever poem it becomes.

Writing to someone is commonly used among authors and helps us move from mulling over our thoughts into making sure someone else can understand and appreciate what we have to say. John Steinbeck was a prolific letter writer and used letters to warm up or get back into is work. Many examples of Steinbeck’s letters have been published in his Life in Letters, and the Journal of a Novel which contains the letters he wrote to Pascal Covici, his friend and editor at The Viking Press, while writing East of Eden.

As always, please share your poem in the comments and I will be happy to read it and share my thoughts.

  1. Here’s the link to a blog post I wrote last year. It’s about letter writing, more specifically, about letters not to be sent. Always a pleasure to do so! Much more fun than some of the letters that have to be sent. Don’t worry, I’ll pen a new one, too, to respond to your prompt. I just liked the old ones very much, so decided to allow them another outing. https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/110737174/posts/3586583641
