Every Wednesday this summer our creative writing prompt encourages you to take up your pen and write in your journal. So go ahead, indulge your author self!

Summertime conjures up images of full-blooming nature, fluttering butterflies, and fireflies. It also reflects sweltering sheets, stagnant heat, and restless nights where flipping over a cool pillow is the only way to survive. Write a poem that captures a summer evening's essence in all of its beauty or beast-ness.

Share with us! Post your journal entries in the comments section of our blog. Have a creative summer!
