Greetings Garden Dwellers!
One Wednesday of each month I set before you a challenge to defy the conventions of a particular theme. I will call upon you to write out of the standard and find new places in the everyday, but there is a twist: in order to complete each challenge, you will also be asked to share something about yourself with the IGWRT community. Let’s move onward to July’s challenge...
FRANKLY, MY DEAR, I DON’T GIVEA DAMN
In America, summer is the season of movies. Great big action block busters as filling as a small popcorn. And while summer movie spectacles are fun (and yes bloated with CGI effects and explosions), this month’s challenge will focus more on substance.
Share with us your favorite line of movie dialogue and then embed it into a poem which is not related to that movie or the character who spoke it in anyway. Reinvent your standard for excellence. Bring us the unexpected.
KEEP IN MIND
This is not about picking a great movie line or the one you think will make a great poem. It’s about sharing the one you hold dear and transforming it into something of your own.
Also, like every challenge, your poem must by newly written for this challenge and not one which you have previously written which conveniently fits the theme.
Go now, my toads, and bring me back something startling, shiny, and new.
