Poets and Writers writing prompt

To quote...

Some of the best stories and essays revolve around the author's hometown. Spend fifteen minutes freewriting about the town or city in which you grew up. Focus on the people, the places, the landscape, and the memories surrounding them. Where was your favorite place to eat? Who were the most interesting characters? What did you do with your family and friends? What did the school look like? Where did you go when you wanted to run away? Read what you've written and choose a section or detail that you find most compelling. Freewrite about it again. Using the second exercise as a guide, put together a collection of items that relate to what you've written, such as maps, menus, or photographs. Next, reach out to family and friends for their related memories about what you've written. Use this collection of writing and ephemera to inspire an essay.
