For this week's prompt, you will create a persona poem. In persona poems, the speaker is not the author (you). You write in the "voice" of a person, object, idea, etc. and write from that perspective.
The subject / speaker of the poem could be anything or anyone. You might have to do some research and use your imagination to make it believable.
I picked up this prompt from a Young Chicago Authors workshop.
Fictional Character Inner Monologue
Your job will be to write the inner monologue for a fictional character.
Dora's Monkey Beams a Distress Call by Scott Beal
Magneto Eyes Strange Fruit by Gary Jackson
Choose a fictional character (from a book, movie, tv show, etc.)
Give a physical description of the character.
Write up an “emotional map” of your character.
Make a list of similarities and differences between you and your character.
Who does the character interact with on a daily basis?
Is the character a hero, villain, or an anti-hero?
What are things the character combats / deals with on a daily basis?
Write a poem where you talk about some aspect of the character's life from their point of view. What is that the fictional character really thinks or really wants people to know or understand about them that no one understands? These are the character's inner, private thoughts, so takes some risks as long as it makes sense for the character.
