Prompt/Cope 7.22.18: “Flashbacks”

Write a poem or story in which you move back and forth in time.  Flashback to a past situation (good or bad) and come back to the present.  What happened then?  How does it affect you now?  Or does it affect you now?  What metaphorical trope will you use?  For example, will you use something in nature to compare this situation to?  Did the situation involve you and somebody else?  Or just you?  If it was just you, consider creating a “past” you and a “present” you as if you’re communicating with yourself.   Explore, imagine, be adventurous in your writing and how the structure of the piece reflects the situation.  (David Welper, Founder/EIC)   #Keep writing…  #StigmaFree  #Zines

Prompt/Cope 6.24.18: “Unwinding”

Many of us writers have day jobs. How do you unwind after the daily grind? Read? Watch tv? Soak in a bath? Go to a literary event? So many things to do in our daily lives. Ever wish you could be in more than one place at once? Write something imaginative about it! There are multiple versions of you and each one is texting each other. Have fun. But remember to unwind and take care of you! (David Welper). #buddykeepwriting

Prompt/Cope 5/9/18: “Jealousy”

Is jealousy a mental mental issue? I suppose it can be if you let it consume you. What or who are you jealous of? Why? As a writer there’s a certain level of “I wish I could write like that person” or “I want X award like that person has.” I feel the jealousy at times. But there’s a point where I tell myself “you’re doing Poetry your way, let them do it their way.” Easier said than done. But part of any creative Art is the “doing it my way” endeavor. Consider this: what if you didn’t get jealous of others’ successes and instead be inspired by them? (David Welper, EIC)
