‘Smash Poetry Journal: 125 Writing Ideas for Inspiration and Self Exploration’ by Robert Lee Brewer


I’ve always loved writing, and tried my hand at poems, too, though I have to admit that I’m more of the prose writer type. I mostly did my writing in my mother tongue and not in English, though. That means, I feel like my English writing has yet to be practiced and improved. When I saw this book on NetGalley I immediately felt like I need to have it and check it out! I haven’t yet finished any of the prompts but I read the book through to see what they’re like, and I love them! Most of the prompts are ones that I would never have thought about, but I’m already inspired! I’m planning to do this “challenge” and eventually write a poem for each promt. I might even share them on my blog. There are also little fun facts about poems, so it’s not a dry listing of prompts. I recommend it to everyone who seeks inspiration to write different kinds of poems, or different topics for poems. I know I will use it.

I got this book from F+W Media/Writer’s Digest Books via NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.
