Links to poetry prompts online
(Don’t be put off by some of the dates for these poetry prompts online: these sites are timeless resources!)

Tell me in the comments what I should add to this list.

(I’ll update the post with your ideas as we go!)


People either love prompts or they hate ’em. I’m clearly a big fan. I’ve been using, writing and sharing prompts (like these) since my earliest days networking online (2003?). The old prompt list I’d published here wasn’t *that* old, but it did date back to 2013. So! It was time for an update. I removed those that were totally defunct (as in no longer available online) and expanded those where more was available than I’d originally shared.
