Meet the Prompters

Since NaHaiWriMo began in February 2011, we’ve had many guest prompters providing daily writing prompts. This page presents brief interviews with each of our prompters to help you get to know them better, starting with our January 2014 prompter. A deep bow of thanks to each of these volunteers for their creativity and reliability in providing daily prompts to inspire us. Click any name to see a photo and brief answers to five questions, including sample poems (months listed do not include months prior to the start of these Meet the Prompter interviews).
