Occupy Wall Street Library Releases Writing Prompt

The online version of the Occupy Wall Street Poetry Anthology has just added one hundred new pages as poems arrive from all over the world.

Follow this link to download a free online copy of the 538-page anthology. If you want to add your work to the anthology, the OWS Library has issued a writing prompt for the week–a good way to join the community writing project.

Here is the writing prompt: “Watch OWS videos on youtube that show police brutality. Spend a half hour in silent reflection. As you reflect, calmly send radiant energy to people the world over that have been victims of police brutality. Then write a poem to a police officer! Dedicate poems to Robert Hass or anyone you know that has been a victim of police brutality.”
