For those of you writing genre fiction (science fiction, fantasy, romance, horror, or mystery), The Writers' Academy offers a ginormous list of "short story ideas you can use and add to" from around the globe. This one sounds suspiciously like a thesis colloquium: "You awake in a still battlefield, under a pile of bodies, blind in one eye. You recall fighting; nothing else."
The New York Times has created a list of 500--wait, make that 650--writing prompts for narrative and personal writing.
National Poetry Month is over, but here are 30 writing prompts with no expiration dates, courtesy of Washington poet Kelly Russell Agodon. She is also the co-author of The Daily Poet: Day-by-Day Prompts for Your Writing Practice.
Now go forth and be brilliant.
