Each month we’ll offer a low-stakes, writing prompt applicable to all genres. Upon completing the prompt, send your piece (500 words or less please) to for potential publication in next month’s newsletter!

Without further adieu, here is your November Scribble challenge:

There’s no denying that while getting together with family and friends is a huge bonus of the holiday season, we all know what the real star is here: the food. From the steaming stuffing to the just-perfectly-crisp turkey to your grandma’s secret-recipe sugar cookies that only come around once a year, holiday food always seems to take on a unique level of perfection. Maybe it’s the nostalgia. Maybe it’s the warmth of being surrounded by your loved ones. Or maybe it’s just that good. 

Your task this month is to write the most descriptive, vivid poem about a holiday meal of your choice.
