For Wednesday, August 13
Write a poem or prose piece inspired by a sign.
Over the next few weeks, be on the lookout for unusual, playful, or cautionary signs. Then, incorporate one of them into a written work.
1. Write from the point-of-view of someone who passes the sign frequently. What goes through their head?
2. Write a short essay (first person) about your reaction to the sign. What stands out for you? Why?
3. If the sign is a warning, write from the point of view of someone who ignores its message. What happens next?
4. Try writing a poem that includes all the words in the sign, but reworks, remixes, or re-purposes them.
