I found some phobias that could be bad for writers.  For today’s poetry prompt:  write a poem about one of these phobias 🙂


Anthropophobia is the fear of meeting people.

Bibliophobia is the fear of books.

Catagelophobia orkatagelophobia is the fear of being made fun of or ridiculed.

Glossophobia of is the fear of speaking in public.

Ideophobia is the fear of ideas.

Logophobia or verbophobia is the fear of words.

Would a person who was afraid of words be reading this article?

Panphobia or pantophobia is the fear of nothing specific. It is the fear of everything. A person with this phobia lives in a state of anxiety all the time.

Peniaphobia is the fear of poverty.

Scopophobia is the fear of being seen or looked at.

Sophophobia is the fear of learning.

Tropophobia is the fear of making changes.

If there are any other phobias you believe would thwart a writer’s success, please comment and tell me about them.
