Prompt for June 17 – Virtual Didier Dumas


An encounter with a twin, a shadow, a reflection . . . embarrassing slip of the wrong name . . . or simply a case of mistaken identity?

Use the prompt to inspire your work in any form (poetry or prose; fiction of any genre; creative nonfiction, essay, or memoir).

Join our virtual meeting at 8pm for reading and discussion.

If you would like to share your work on our blog, visit Submittable after 7pm.

The prompt was inspired by Litte Girl, a work of art by Kate Clark, reproduced in Citizen by Claudia Rankine. If you’re interested, you can read more about both works here.
