Each month, a JCPL librarian interviews published writers who share their favorite writing prompts. Whether you're just getting started or have written for years, you'll find ideas and advice to inspire you and help you become a better writer. Brought to you in partnership with the Carnegie Center for Literacy and Learning.
For our second episode, we spoke to Kentucky Poet Laureate Crystal Wilkinson. Crystal shares a writing prompt that inspired an essay in her book "Perfect Black." She explains how you can adapt the prompt for fiction or poetry and offers tips to help you generate your best writing.
