“A Twiglet is a short phrase. Or a word. Maybe two. Its aim is to “prompt” a flow. A thought. A memory. If something comes to mind, write. A polished piece isn’t the goal; creativity is. Poetry. Prose. Short lines. Whatever you create is a success.” ~ Misky
Several friends (and some strangers) have asked if I would consider hosting weekly fiction, poetry, or just writing prompts. The simple answer is… no. I will not. But worry not, my Wicked Luvs, for there are some wonderful places already offering what you’ve been asking for. Here is my short list:
Imaginary Garden with Real Toads – “a place that always welcomes Followers and Visitors ~ every prompt and challenge is open to anyone…” Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays (poetry, and the occasional fiction prompt). I host a poetry and flash fiction prompt at The Garden about once a month.
Prompt Nights – a different topic every week. Writers should “feel free to take the subject in whichever direction [they] desire. Previously written work is more than welcome.” Fridays (fiction and poetry).
The Twiglet – as stated in the opening quote, “a Twiglet is a short phrase. Or a word. Maybe two. Its aim is to “prompt” a flow. A thought. A memory. If something comes to mind, write. A polished piece isn’t the goal; creativity is. Poetry. Prose. Short lines. Whatever you create is a success.” Tuesdays.
Poets United – “a community for poets who blog.” All week (poetry prompts, interviews and more).
dVerse – “a place for poets and writers.” Monday, Tuesday, Thursdays (poetry prompts and a bit more).
I shall continue hosting Dark Poetry for the Cruellest Month, in April… and Witches in Fiction, in October. However, if twice a year doesn’t satisfy your Magaly-hosting needs, come and visit the Imaginary Garden with Real Toads—you will find me there once a month, hosting Poetry and Flash Fiction with Magaly. Yep, I’ve just written “hosting” 4 times and “Magaly” 3 times in the same paragraph. I must love to Magaly and to host. Fine, make that 5 and 4 for a deliciously uneven 9.
So, my Luvs, here is to growing our twiglets together… in the friendliest of word-gardens.
