Writing Prompts: Poetry, Memoir, and Science Fiction

Three writing prompts to inspire.

Genre: Poetry

Pick a sea creature. Use metaphors about that sea creature to describe an emotional event in your life. Use the creature to represent yourself or another person. Or use language that evokes the creature and/or its habitat.

Genre: Memoir

What is the first thing you think of when you think of your mother? Why? Tell the story of why this particular thing, action, or feeling comes to mind.

Genre: Science Fiction

Imagine that the developed world has lost its ability to speak because people only communicate via smartphones and other electronic devices. Write a short story about the last man on Earth who can speak.
