2018 April PAD Challenge: Day 10

Publish date:

Wow! We're already one-third of the way through this challenge, and I've been impressed (as usual) by the creative approaches to each prompt. It never fails to amaze and delight me to see a prompt take life once in the hands of poets.

For today's Two-for-Tuesday prompt:

  1. Write a deal poem.
  2. Write a no deal poem.


Re-create Your Poetry!

Revision doesn’t have to be a chore–something that should be done after the excitement of composing the first draft. Rather, it’s an extension of the creation process!

In the 48-minute tutorial video Re-creating Poetry: How to Revise Poems, poets will be inspired with several ways to re-create their poems with the help of seven revision filters that they can turn to again and again.

Here’s my attempt at a Deal and/or No Deal Poem:


let's talk this out
before we stop
no need to shout
or call the cops

let's make a deal
strike an accord
i know you feel
broken & bored

but for tonight
let's have some fun
until the night's
killed by the sun
