It’s a Family Affair| Let’s Talk About It

Families can be so different. Some put the “fun” in dysfunctional. Others have created who systems to avoid conflict and confrontation. Each of us, whether we want to admit it or not come from some background.


For the longest time I was very hesitant about writing about my family. I was afraid I would say too much, or say too little. I didn’t want to start an argument. Gradually, I’ve realized that I need to write about them for myself.

Do you write about your family in your poetry or do you avoid the topic all together? Let’s talk about it.

This week’s writing prompt is Daddy Issues.  And if you didn’t get a chance to, check out this week’s publication opportunity.

Daddy Issues: Poetry Prompt

Next Sunday is Father’s Day in the United States. Let’s talk about some father/daughter, father/son relationships. They can be as dysfunctional as you want or not at all. Memories of two characters, memories of your own, a pretend or real scenario, a sketch of the father you’d like to be one day, of the father you are…the list goes on. Let your imagination be your guide. I’m so interested in seeing what you guys come up with!

Make sure share it in the comments so we can all bask in your words.

Check out what each is doing and share! Let’s build this community. All links will be added to this year’s digest.
