Oxymorons

This writing prompt generator was created by Teacher Consultants Corbett Harrison, Phil Harriman, and Dena Robinson over a pizza dinner during a function sponsored by the Northern Nevada Writing Project.


Writer Instructions:

Oxymorons are fun.  An oxymoron is created when two words that seem to be opposites sit next to each other.  Good oxymorons can inspire great writing.

This serendipitous word game will give you an oxymoron.  Press the buttons below to end up with either a Positive-to-Negative Oxymoron or a Negative-to-Positive Oxymoron.  Write a story or poem that could be named the oxymoron you like best.  Or write a story or poem where you use your favorite oxymoron somewhere inside to describe something important.
