In August of 2019, I ran a writing prompt challenge based on the titles of seminal feminist books. These provocative book titles generated some of the most stellar writing responses I have ever received. This month’s challenge, Other Voices, Other Rooms, combines some of my favorites from the original challenge as well as the titles of important new books I have added to my reading list.
While not all of my readers may define themselves as feminists, I believe the prompts could be creatively inspiring to anyone. You certainly don’t need to be a feminist to participate, nor does your response piece need to be written from a feminist perspective. As always, I hope to accomplish two goals: to inspire you creatively and to encourage you to add at least one of these titles to your reading list.
There is only one rule to my prompt challenge: the poem or book title should serve as the title of your piece OR all the words of the title should be integrated into your piece somehow.
I LOVE posting your prompt responses on Brave & Reckless. I welcome your poetry, prose, flash fiction, creative nonfiction, essay, and art. I will accept responses to any of March’s prompts on any day before March 31st, but will not start publishing them on Brave & Reckless until March 1st.
Email your prompt responses with a short bio (if you have not recently submitted to me) and a suggested image to email@example.com.
