Tolkien Femslash week is doing a challenge which invites you to make prompts from a list of Sappho quotations (or fragments).
The current SWG challenge suggests combining the song prompts with the Femslash challenge, if it works for you.

I like Sappho so I thought this  was a lovely idea. I made up some prompts, in case anyone is interested, i.e. I picked quotations and added a f/f pairing from the Legendarium that came to mind.(I'm afraid some of the more popular pairings are not included.)

They are posted to Tumblr but I'll also copy them in below.

I like those prompts and pairings (and the Sappho prompt idea generally). I'm just not sure if I'll have time to write anything in the next three weeks, much less this week . . .

It's true, there's some timing flexibility. I'm just a little sorry that I can't write something for/during the Femslash Week event itself. I'll have to see for the rest.
