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 10
For our 10th episode, we talk to David Dominé, author of A Dark Room in Glitter Ball City. David offers a food-related writing prompt that will have you reaching into the back of your refrigerator.
He also talks about his writing process, including how he manages rejection. "It's hard to get a publishing house, even if you have an agent," he says. "So just don't give up every time you get a rejection letter, just put it on the pile. And every time I got a rejection letter, I'd be like, well, that's one try closer to my book finally getting accepted. So you have to be persistent."
Plus, we're excited to share a story submitted by listener Beth Kelly, "The Box on the Porch." Beth wrote her story in response to Gwenda Bond's prompt in episode 9. more: Prompt to Page With David Dominé
