Poetry Prompts for Neighborhood Walks

Start Poetry Month off right by writing a poem of your own every day for 5 days!No need to worry about what to write—I’ll send you a prompt every morning that leads you on a discovery walk around your neighborhood & gives you details to look out for & incorporate in your poem.

Why Walk?

These prompts are specifically designed to get you outside, because being outdoors boosts creativity & strolling helps combat writer's block.After your 5 days of prompts arrive, I'll have some suggestions for where to find more, so you can keep up the momentum for the whole month.
