Totally Optional Prompts is a community of people who gather to share poetry. We provide weekly prompts which are Totally Optional read each other's offerings, and generally have a good time.
Want to participate?
Every Saturday evening, we'll post a prompt here. Then you post a poem on your blog. Then Thursday morning, come back here and find the Thursday post. Leave the PERMALINK (that is, the link to just that post, not the link to your blog itself) in the Linky widget.
Remember, prompts are Totally Optional-- if this week's prompt doesn't turn your crank, then feel free to post something else entirely.
Want to suggest a prompt?
Leave a comment on one of the Saturday evening posts suggesting the prompt. If you leave it on one of the Thursday posts, we may not see it.
If you are posting a poem by someone else, please obtain that person's permission or make sure it's in the public domain.
Do you have a poetry collection available? We'll post it here. Email your name, the title of your collection and the URL where people can get it to tielansari AT gmail DOT com. TOP participants only, please.
