September Prompts 2022

Ever since my kids got the book Humongous Fungus, we (as a family) have all been fascinated by these incredible creatures and we love spotting them in nature. So this month, I thought we'd celebrate the weird and wonderful, fantastical and magical world of mushrooms!

September Creative Prompts by Gia Graham

If you're new to the newsletter, how you interpret the prompts is entirely up to you – the goal is to simply to spark your creativity on those days when you feel stuck. Here are a few loose suggestions to get you started if you're not sure where to begin.


Mushroom Forest: Remember the movie A Bug's Life? (a classic, in my opinion). Think of how everything was viewed from a bug's perspective. I imagine a cluster of mushrooms might look like the Redwood Forest from that point of view.


Shrooms In Bloom: Mushrooms and flowers are the first thing that come to mind for me… what comes to mind for you?


Fantastic Fungi: From plastic-eating Oyster mushrooms to glow-in-the-dark bioluminescent Jack-O-Lantern mushrooms - fungi really are pretty fantastic. Create something to celebrate all the weird and wonderful fungi out there.


Mushroom Magic: From sweet, magical fairytale toadstools to trippy, psychedelic 'magic mushrooms'… there are a wide range of options for this one.
