How to find writing prompts

All the typewriters in London...

The internet is overstuffed with good bits, bad bits, and everything-in-between bits. Searching for writing prompts? What flavor?

Sometimes it's an indirect route that will serve you best. Don't just search the internet for "writing prompts." Search for details and angles that will give your poetry specificity. It is both cliche and accurate to say that the world is at your fingertips.

I attended the Poetry Practice Space for the first time, an event at the Independent Publishing Resource Center, IPRC. For one of the prompts, the host linked to list of curious words. And now, thanks to the power of the internet where we are all interconnected, you too can write poems (or other formats) about rhetoricasters, infantocracy, and zymotechnics.

Happy writing. Here's the link!

(If you're willing to share a line or two that were sparked by this list, add it in the comments below. Or let me know if the prompt generates something that gets published!)
