Bronwen Tate’s The Silk The Moths Ignore: Episode 2 of the Write Away Promptcast

by | Apr 22, 2022 | Weekly Prompt

Episode 2 of the Write Away Promptcast is now live! Our guest this week is Bronwen Tate, poet, essayist, teacher, and author of the new book of poems, The Silk The Moths Ignore. Along with readings of four selected poems from the book, Bronwen offers some notes on a kind of writing prompt that she gave herself, a process that took on a different cast as she experienced miscarriages, the births of her children, and the early years of motherhood.

After we hear from Bronwen, I outline a prompt that offers some possibilities for your own writing. Please let me know if you try the prompt or find inspiration in Bronwen’s work. Be sure to pick up a copy!
