Vince Gotera is a Professor of English at the University of Northern Iowa where he served as Editor of the North American Review (2000-2016).

As always, we'll also include live open lines for responses to our weekly prompt or any other poems you'd like to share. For details on how to participate, either via Skype or by phone, go to: https://www.rattle.com/rattlecast/

This Week's Prompt:
Write a poem that contains an anagram. An anagram is created by rearranging the letters of a certain word or phrase to make another word or phrase—for example, an anagram of “anagram” is “nag a ram.” Bonus points if the title of your poem is part of the anagram.

Next Week's Prompt:
You’ve been driving for hours on a long, empty stretch of highway. It’s miles and miles of nothing but desert landscape--no rest stops, no gas stations. Just when you’re starting to think you’ll never see civilization again, a building comes into view. What is it? Write a poem about it.

The Rattlecast livestreams on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter, then becomes an audio podcast. Find it on iTunes, Spotify, or anywhere else you get your podcasts.
