The WRC Attic

All the Good Stuff from Past Home Pages

The Home Page Prompts Archive contains good stories, sublime poems and thoughtful essays triggered by interesting prompts. They are here to stay. Stored here for posterity are the responses to prompts that have gone before. We love them and are proud of them, especially those submitted by our café guests, but fresh ideas abound and we need to make room for them on the Home Page. Think of this as the Writers Resources Cafe Attic, where we keep the treasures that we have collected. No need to climb rickety stairs or to rummage through dusty trunks, just click on the title below and your favorites will be displayed.
