Syria | Poetry Prompt

Before this prompt, the ideas have been fairly esoteric in nature. This month, I was waffling between the word I was interested in hearing more about. However, with President Trump’s position on the Syrian crisis, the refugee, and the response to the Syrian President Bashar Assad’s chemical attack against his citizens; I had to know, how do you feel? What do you think about this red line? How are you processing this? Do you agree or disagree with our actions in Syria? Give your thoughts a voice and share them.

Syria

One of the reasons behind this poetry anthology is to take a look at what’s happening in President Trump’s first year in the White House. Poets throughout history have evoked emotional responses and to keep track of the world’s happenings.

This is your opportunity to write something real. Be bold and unapologetic. And it will have the opportunity to be published as a statement about the first at President Trump’s first year. This will lean neither for nor against it. Each month I will offer you a different prompt for this activity. You can interpret any way you would like. But the roots of your poem should be with the 45th President of the United States.

A portion of the proceeds will be dedicated to a charity of our choice. The rest will go to the upkeep of this website. Some changes are coming in the future of The Reverie Journal, but we need money to make it happen.

Write your poem about fake news. Let us know if you’d like to submit for possible publication and let’s see what we can create.

I thought at first about using “Alternative Facts” but I feel like “Fake News” could lead to some much more interesting thoughts and comments.

Go there. Where? Wherever your mind takes you when you hear these words. These prompts are about what you’re feeling, what you’re seeing. What’s going on in your world. This is the most remarkable presidency in our lifetime regardless of where you sit on the political line. Write something real. Don’t be afraid.

Resistance | Poetry Prompt

In times of stress, times of trouble, and times of need the one thing a writer can do, is write. Our experiences, feelings, emotions, thoughts, observations can be used as damning slashing hacking at the establishment or a soothing balm to try to heal wounds and bring the people together.

This prompt isn’t about one political leaning over another. It’s about you telling your tale:  your feelings, your thoughts, what you observe. You’ve probably noticed the term “The Resistance” more and more on social media in terms of people who are resisting President Trump’s changes.

It’s your turn to be raw. Open. To take the inundation of news, information, fake news, alternate facts, and to process it into something that makes sense to you to share with other.

There will only be one of these per month. And a couple of other softer prompts as well just for fun. I’ll be trying to get interviews with poets on here and to do some other new things. A new year, let’s try a new method to our writing.

Be inspired and inspiring!
