Prompt Crew: One Prompt, a Thousand Possibilities

What’s this show about?
One prompt, a thousand possibilities. Join KB Carle, El Rhodes, Lindz McLeod and Sage Tyrtle for two hours of inspiring writing. Four very different writers respond to the same prompt – what different worlds will we create?

How will the show work?
Sage will give a writing prompt, and all four writers will respond. At home, you get to respond too. The four writers will read the results of their work, and Sage will randomly pick one volunteer from the audience to share their response to the prompt. We’ll keep on writing words until the two hours are up, and everyone goes home with AWESOME new writing, inspired and cheerful.

Where did this show come from?
Sage Tyrtle and her illustrator son never miss Illustration Isolation, an online show that features up to six artists responding to the same prompt. Although Sage is a writer, not an artist, she found watching the dramatically different responses to the same prompt so inspiring that she began to wonder if she could set up a similar show specifically for writers.
