Prompt for October 7 – Virtual Didier Dumas

There is a school made of twigs on the oxbow lake

Visit this Setting Generator Bot and use one of its results to inspire your work. If you are interested in tweaking the results or creating your own setting based on the bot’s parameters, the formula is “There is a [building] made of [natural material] on the [geographical feature].” This combination of elements draws playfully on your individual, conscious and subconscious associations with world cultures, historical threads, and sensory observations and imprints. Fun!

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.

Sadly, the Setting Generator Bot is no longer operational. Enjoy the wealth of archives!
