Prompt to Page With Claudia Love Mair

Each month, we interview a published writer who shares their favorite writing prompt. Whether you’re just getting started or have written for years, you’ll find ideas and advice to inspire you and help you become a better writer.

Prompt to Page is brought to you in partnership with the Carnegie Center for Literacy and Learning.

Listen to Episode 11

For our eleventh episode, we talk to Claudia Love Mair, author and coordinator of the Carnegie Center's Kentucky Black Writers Collaborative. Claudia Love discusses the importance of names in her life and shares a prompt that will make you see your own name—and yourself—in a new way.

Claudia Love advises all writers to "stay open. All around you are prompts. There are prompts in the trees and in the clouds and in your mother's face. So, don't look at prompts as only being, you know, words on paper or something that you get at a workshop, something in the books. There are prompts all around you. Take advantage and keep writing."
