Writer’s Workshops 6: Shoes, Show, and Tell

There was a poetry prompt a while back that asked writers to put themselves in someone else’s shoes.

I decided to take this prompt and become a friend of mine who had a crush on a waiter.

The idea was to convey the feelings of the character through images.

It’s a good exercise, especially when writers are told to ‘show more’ than ‘tell,’ which usually means to describe using the five senses. 

You can view the poem, Hidden Crush, at (Winter 2014, Issue 61). Scroll down to my name. The picture is of the Emerging Urban Poets group.
