For today’s prompt, write a picking up poem. There are so many possible things to pick up, aren’t there? Picking up where we left off; picking up the pieces; and picking up this mess. Some people use pick up lines at bars, while others pick up the slack. Let’s pick up where we left off with these Wednesday Poetry Prompts.
Learn how to find more readers for your poetry with the Build an Audience for Your Poetry tutorial! In this 60-minute tutorial, poets will learn how to connect with more readers online, in person, and via publication.
Poets will learn the basic definition of a platform (and why it’s important), tools for cultivating a readership, how to define goals and set priorities, how to find readers without distracting from your writing, and more!
Here’s my attempt at a Picking Up Poem:
“if i fall”
if i fall
please pick me up
or scoot me
in a corner
ask me how
i liked my trip
& that you’ll
see me next fall
