Autumn Inspired Creative Prompts

Thanks for Sharing!

Autumn is such an inspirational time, and it feels like the time when nature itself gets creative… 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.


 You might also like to join our pay-what-you-can Autumn course, Fall Into Autumn – You can sign up here. Fall into Autumn is an online creative course that spans October with daily emails full of creative prompts, mindfulness, recipes, nature connections, art inspiration, poetry and lots more… I would love for you to join me
