Writing Challenges: Inspiration and ideas to spark your creativity every day

When the world becomes a dark and frightening place, we turn to poetry in the hope that the words will make sense of what doesn't make sense, to make a connection, a bond, with others who share the same dismay, outrage, and desolation. We turn to poetry to fight for change. Words, not weapons, can inspire and empower. Find strength in poetry: your own poetry and the poetry of others, such as Amanda Gorman and her prescient 2019 poem, "8 Reasons to Stand Up Today Against Abortion Bans in the United States."
