June Mood Board and Writing Prompts

While working on my submissions for issue II of Freeverse Revolution’s quarterly poetry magazine, I wound up doing a deep dive into the world of Greek mythology. I spent some time reading about sirens, and since they didn’t wind up being the focus of my submissions, I thought they would be great material for writing prompts instead.

I’ve always found sirens more interesting then mermaids, more edgy and dangerous. They aren’t just objectified in the mythology they inhibit, they are feared.

June Writing Prompts

Just over the horizon
Periwinkle waves
The siren’s call
Silhouette of the shore
Formidable shapes
Dashed upon the rocks
Slipping under the water
Enduring mythology


  1. Late to this–but I love it! My current WIP delves into some mythology and takes place in and near the water–hadn’t thought of sirens, but that might be something for me to think about with my female-focused story!
