The hero’s journey is one of the oldest forms of storytelling. It has many components that can go in a thousand directions with a thousand faces. Your quest, should you care to accept, is to use one part of the hero’s journey as the focus of your quest poem. It could be a call to adventure or the refusal of that call. Meeting of a new mentor and its consequences, or facing an ordeal that creates inner change. Perhaps it is the moment of return when the hero brings new understanding to her people. Let the twelve steps of the Hero’s Journey be your inspiration. Your poem could be fantasy, science fiction or horror based. Let your imagination be your guide.
We are eager to read what you send!
