Jacquie Bellon, Liz Collins, and Kate Dwyer have been writing together for twenty some odd years.

 They pick a  new prompt and write a poem each day . A few words or a phrase chosen by one of them on any given day. It is not a topic but an inspiration. The prompt can lead anywhere, to the past to the future, to the world around you and in you, the inside of your brain.

They write whatever comes up, any style, any length.

After years of this, there is a pile of paper destined for trash or treasure.

The sifting begins until 33 poems emerge trimmed, scrubbed clean, readied for presentation. This book is a result of that undertaking.

This evening will be an evening of hearing the poets read individual poems that blossomed out of shared prompts.
