It's a big ol' game of telephone. Except for a lot harder. And scarier. Writing with people is hard, and having to collaborate on a piece of writing is harder-especially for poetry. The goal of this game is to have fun and see what turns out, as well as trying to tell where the poem is going based off of a previous line. It's not really that serious, although we are trying to create something good-just have fun with it!

How it works: It's like telephone, but with poetry. Just write a line, and see where it's heading.

I'll start us off!


they stood knee-deep in ashes of ambition
life is confusing so I try to confuse life back

What a fun idea! Anyone who's interested in group poetry writing should also get involved in this club -> clubs/2708



while the flames of greed still stood aglow
but i don't think i can ever love someone
who doesn't understand that teal
is a different color than dark cyan.

the true cause of their cruel misery
but i don't think i can ever love someone
who doesn't understand that teal

A house, on the hill, disconnected from the world
"Writing, though, belongs first to the writer, and then to the reader, to the world.

The subject is a catalyst, a character, but our responsibility is, has to be, to the work."

- David L. Ulin

back when sand was rock and wind hurricanes
but i don't think i can ever love someone
who doesn't understand that teal
