I took this class w/Caitlin last Fall and it was fantastic! 🤓 Here’s the piece that I wrote for this prompt:

At the Animal Conservation Awards

"Pretty exciting to be nominated for an award."

"I eat them."


"I eat them. The animals I'm saving. The reason I worked so hard to get them off the endangered list is so I could continue eating them."


"I know this is a lot to hear at once but I had to tell someone and you have a kind face."

"Not one that you want to eat, I hope."

"Never people. Never people."

"That's good."

"Never again."


"Huh? Oh, they're about to announce the winner. Good luck! And thank you."

"Don't mention it. Please."

Temporary is one of the best books I've read recently, so excited to see it made the list!

I loved this class so much, Caitlin! Are you still thinking of teaching another section with a different platform? The piece I wrote for this prompt turned into about 15,000 words of... something during Jami Attenberg's 1000 days of summer. I keep coming back to it to see what it wants to be!
