Eternal Prompts

Writer's block got you down? Are you stuck, and in need of an idea? Try one of Lit Mag's eternal prompts. They've worked for editors past and present.

Prompt #1: Try writing something genuinely happy. No, really. Hurt and angry feelings are easy to access, and thus, easier to write about. Although it sounds cheesy, writing a happy poem is harder than it sounds. Give it a whirl. 

Prompt #2: Write a poem about Biology 1. It's a cult classic for Lit Mag editors, and combining poetry and science always provides a wonderful contrast.
