Fairy Tale Prompt From Spinning Straw Into Gold: An Experiment in Concrete Poetry.


I love Christie's Fourth Friday Fairy Tale Prompts. When I'm given a small prompt like this I feel like I can write anything and not really be too stressed about the result.

I hope the spacing comes out alright on different computers/ phones!
