Last year I was given a few writing prompt ideas by members, and I've used at least a couple of them, but I thought it would be nice to have a place where you all could give me suggestions.

Suggest away!

I found out that April is National Poetry Month recently (now that it's almost come to an end.) I suspect we have far too many of these various national months, but perhaps we should have a poetry writing prompt in honor of it. I don't know how far in advance writing prompts are selected so maybe it isn't possible this late in the game.

I'd like to lodge a protest against the math suggestion ;-)

Perhaps a specific kind of poetry, such as a limerick, if you haven't done that as a prompt yet...

As it turns out, the coming week's prompt is a poetry prompt.

Also, don't forget the writing challenge! :)

I think I've got an "End Of The World" writing prompt set to appear sometime this spring - I don't remember exactly when, though.

Write about the time you first learned the world wasn't fair.
