Making your own poetry
Over recent weeks this blog has brought many different poems and imagery.
As a final poetry post I thought it would be nice to help you make some poems of your own. To make it easier let’s try to stick to 10 lines and see what happens from there.
Review writing that you have made over recent weeks.
Pull out lines and words that stand out to you.
See if you can create a collage with words bringing together some of the different themes.
Try reading your line out loud, cross out any words or lines that you don’t like and add in new words that help connect sentences.
If you haven’t done much creative writing yet, or have just discovered this blog try cutting up a magazine article about the natural world. See what lines, words and images stand out to you.
I hope that you have fun! Do send me your results! We will be playing with words in this week’s creative writing class.
