Back Cover Blurb:

Compiled by seasoned poet Stacy Lynn Mar, this book is jam-packed with close to 2,000 creative writing prompts. Stacy first began compiling the prompts for personal use. After much success, she decided to publish them in hopes that other writers might benefit. The book contains fourteen chapters, each with a unique form of writing prompt. Each chapter has up to literally hundreds of prompts. The book isn't technical; it includes simple language and is so reader-friendly (yet complex in it's topics and prompts) that anyone can benefit from the book, rather it be a professional writer or an amateur poet!

Mannequin Rivalry is a publication of Pink.Girl.Ink. Press, 2015

Feminist, poet, teacher, and scholar...Stacy is as bold and witty as she ever was in this fourth installment. Yet again, she has masterfully orchestrated a confessional collection of poetry resurrected from the gritty observations of everyday life. 

Her accounts of love, loss, suffering, and the beautiful agility of the human spirit have been well-crafted from front-seat observations and five a.m. coffee sessions. 

Stacy has a remarkable sense for detail and a dramatic, unique skill for wrapping the 'everyday' into metaphorical sentiments. She masters this gift in the poem 'Mountain Parkway' as she remembers an old love and simultaneously pays homage to her homeland: 

"The summer is passing 
Like a long arm swaying 
From the passenger seat 
Of a car on a four-lane highway. 
And I ride alongside you 
Like a virtue, a wild nag 
That grinds my eyesight 
To the moon-ground recollections 
Of dreams that buzzed in June 
Now as splintered as rosewood 
And littered of memories 
That irk my nervous hands 
Like a nose itch that won't wipe away." 

What Readers Are Saying:

"Her raw, metaphorical take on life and relationships reminds me of a younger, softer version of Sharon Olds." 
-Tammi Watts, Educator from Wisconsin 

"Once she pulls you in, it's impossible not to complete a poem. Her words read as sentimental, metaphorical eulogies to everyday life. I can't read a book by Mar without pausing to pay thanks to even the experience of the mundane." 
-Jennifer, Blog Writer and educator of Culinary Arts, from New Jersey 

"Remarkable would be a bland understatement. This young poet is as intelligent and creative as she is touching and heart-rending. She adores life, she embraces it's scars..."

Deeper Than Pink is a publication of Pink.Girl.Ink.. 2014

This cunning collection from Stacy is bold and reminiscent of women everywhere. Unafraid to out-step boundaries and stereotypes, she has written each line with a brilliant determination to have her voice heard. From the trials of motherhood to the modern-day tragedies of teenage angst, Stacy will take you on a journey through a childhood of esoteric beginnings into a blossoming young woman on the verge of finding her place in this world. She speaks of losing (and finding) love, family devotion, maternal instincts, women's issues, and personal demons in words so rich you'll feel as if you've fallen into the pages of her world. This is a collection of poetry that everyone (especially every woman) can relate to. Miss Mar speaks of life and transgressions with such a brave, confessional voice that you'll feel you've accidentally overheard someone else's private conversation. As brutal as it is beautiful, you'll remember the words and life lessons of this piece of work long after the last page is turned.
