To celebrate the holiday season your writing prompt this week is to bring the magic of poetry to someone else’s day. To do this, you will write an uplifting poem, print it on paper and then leave that poem somewhere that it will be found. This could be on a table at a coffee shop, inside the pages of a book or magazine, or on the desk of a colleague.
To participate online, take a photo of the poem and load it to your Instagram account with the hashtag #IGPoetSecretSanta. Don’t forget to the write the hashtag #IGPoetSecretSanta on the poem as well, so others can search and follow.
Please note that we do NOT advocate for littering, so if you are going to leave your poem outside, please write it on a leaf or similar biodegradable product.
Our prompt this week is brought to you in association with Portland based poet, @poemlandia.
