Welcome to Friday’s edition of Writing Prompts for Stay-at-Home Writers. Today’s prompt is from Alicia Jo Rabins.
Alicia Jo Rabins is a 2020 Oregon Literary Fellowship recipient. Fruit Geode, Alicia’s second poetry book, was published by Augury Books, an imprint of Brooklyn Arts Press, in October 2018 and was a New York Times Book Review New & Notable selection. Her first book, Divinity School, won the 2015 APR/Honickman First Book Prize, selected by C.D. Wright; was a finalist for the Oregon Book Award; and was one of Poets & Writers Magazine‘s top poetry debuts of 2015.
Alicia Jo and her poetry and music were recently featured on OPB’s Think Out Loud.
Alicia shared the following prompt:
Write a poem in the bathtub (or shower if you don’t have a bathtub).
Literally. I’ve been doing this almost every night and it’s getting me through.
Tune in next Tuesday for a prompt from Beth Alvarado. Let us know how you’re doing, and how your writing is going, and let us know if you have a prompt to share! Email Susan Moore, Director of Programs for Writers, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
