This prompt is based on a psychological exercise where the patient addresses an empty chair as if a particular person was sitting in it, one whom the patient wants to work something out with. Your assignment is to address your poem to an imaginary person (or being, or…) in an empty chair.
This month’s prompt is Local History, because some of us will be performing at the sealing of the Okaloosa County timecapsule on December 14 at the Heritage Museum of Northwest Florida. Our group is called “The Panhandle Poetry Project.”

Sorry for posting this at only 12:40 a.m. I hope to be asleep before 3.
We didn’t come up with a prompt for the September 10th reading, so it’s Poet’s Choice.
If you missed some of our April poetry prompts, check earlier in this blog starting here. If you have another favorite website from where you get your prompts, let us know so we don’t run out again!
Here’s the prompt: Why does Windows take so long?
See you 8/13, 6pm!
Did we mention this is our first anniversary show? We started a year ago and now we’re a 2nd Tuesday night staple with poetry-loving Crestview residents.
Our poetry starter for our July reading is: Nostalgia ain’t what it used to be.
Remember Cats & Kittens, we meet every 2nd Tuesday at the Crestview Public Library at 6pm. See you there and then. Or later, Alligator!
Most poets support themselves so they can write poetry. The poets profiled in this article are no exception. We’ll wager that y’all reading this post fall into this category too. So for the last prompt of Poetry Month 2013, write a poem inspired by your day job.
Thank you for following our blog this month. We hope we’ve been of service.
