Prompt for June 12 – Virtual Carson McCullers House

These days I check my news app dreading some new and overwhelming calamity, like a volcanic eruption or tsunami somewhere in the world, something that might bury us under the already heavy burden of collective worrying. I really, really hope nothing like that happens. For an antidote to the worrying, for tonight’s writing prompt I invite you to look for a news headline that you can twist in a new and surprising direction. Try lifting just the title of a news item for a creative piece, or use the article as a whole for a reimagining of the world.

Then join us at 7pm for our virtual salon on Zoom, for readings and conversation. Hope to see you then!
