The Writers' Circle: A Podcast Experience
2.1. Performance - The Last Text
Show Notes

After hibernating all Winter, the Writers' Circle is back on and poppin'! Khaliah is joined by first time Circle guests and good friends Troy / Yunglibrary, Dez Holland and Deezion. Inspired by a prompt from Philly poet laureate @TrepetaMason and @YolanadWisher, we dig into our phones and confront our past selves, writing poems inspired by our last text message. We turn to the books for inspiration and pontificate on performing self, politics around dress, the showmanship of open mic and slam culture, and how uptown jawns be so damn hype. Grab a pen and join in as we write, share and talk our shit. 

Prompts:

  • 3-min Freewrite
  • Look in your messages and find the last text you sent. Write a piece using that line. (5m)
  • Choose a book at random off your shelf. Turn to page 17. Read the 5th line. Write a piece using the line. (5m)

Remember, the prompt is just a suggestion! Share your writing with us by emailing writerscirclepod@gmail.com or send a DM. Follow The Writers' Circle on Instagram @writercirclepod and Twitter @writerscirclepc
