Summer Inspired Creative Prompts

Here are some simple creative prompts to encourage you to write, draw, make, paint or create anything… go through the list, one a day for a few weeks, or pick a number at random and work on one prompt. Don’t know where to start? Look for songs or poems with the prompt in the title to deepen your inspiration.  Try free writing, simple sketching, making 5 photographs or writing haikus (read about Haikus here). Have fun with the prompts, and feel free to share anything you create in the comments or on our Facebook group.
