Poetry Prompt for the Week of 9/24
September 18, 2018
Every other week, The Lance will be posting a writing prompt to The Shield’s “poetry corner.” Responses to these prompts could be featured in The Lance itself, or they may be brought to a writer’s workshop. The first writer’s workshop for The Lance is on October 4 in room 104.
This week’s prompt is one found on the Writer’s Digest website that suggests a piece of fiction, poem, or a scene focusing on hands…
Give Them a Hand
Write a scene about a conversation or another interaction, and include a focus specifically on the characters’ hands. Include the appearance of the hands, as well as the way they move and gesture. What do the hands say about the personalities involved?
