December Challenge: Seasonal Prose

A cool autumn breeze carries familiar, childhood scents. Memories of seasons past wash over you, and you feel a swell of emotion, rising like the Harvest Moon on the horizon.


In this month’s featured challenge, we want you to write a Prose Poem about your favorite season. Spring, fall, winter, summer…whichever you like! 

Prose Poetry is exactly what it sounds like—poetry written in a prose style. This means that, like prose fiction (i.e. novels, short stories), there are no line breaks or rhyme schemes. However, Prose Poetry does utilize poetic language and tools like repetition and sonic devices, as well as luscious descriptions, similes, and metaphors. 

Here’s a how-to guide all about Prose Poetry to help you with this month’s Challenge!

Challenge entries can be submitted until December 31, and we will post the roundup here on the blog a week later on January 7. Remember to leave feedback on three other stories in order to participate in the Challenge! 

And don’t forget that you can nominate up to three of your favorite stories for the roundup by clicking the red dragon. So write, read, comment, and nominate! Instructions here.

Finally, stay tuned for the Dragon School roundup coming next week…


Good luck, and Season’s Greetings!
