An invitation to Long Distance Poem

Over the coming weeks and months, we’ll be sharing a series of writing prompts created by TCR contributors with you — a playful invitation to write out of a moment of distance.

Prompts will be posted here and across our social media platforms. We invite you to respond, and to send us your creations! All submissions will be considered for publication in a forthcoming, long distance-themed issue of our web folio, ti-TCR.

To submit, email us at with the subject line LONG DISTANCE POEM and tell us which prompt you are responding to.
