Prompt for September 16 – Virtual Didier Dumas

Shoulder Surfing

It’s a form of eavesdropping . . . Gleaning stories that are none of your business from an over-the-shoulder glimpse of another person’s phone screen.

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 readings and discussion.

If you prefer to post your work to our blog, visit Submittable after 7pm to upload your work. We will do our best to publish everything we receive.

Thanks to Lithub for inspiring the prompt with “When I’m Telling a Story I Imagine the Eavesdropper Over My Shoulder,” a recent profile of author Walter Mosley.
