Again again again! Another ‘wikihow’ page but this time it is about poetry.
As I’m sure some of you know – I am in the middle of a Creative Writing course with the Open University here in the UK. For my third assignment (due in in 4 days and I haven’t even started it yet!) I am to write one or more poems, totalling 40 lines, about a given subject (or choose one of my own) and then do a commentary at the end totalling 500 words. Simple enough? No.
After reading the accompanying resource material – http://www.amazon.co.uk/Creative-Writing-Linda-Anderson/dp/0415372437 – which was given to me by the uni, I am still in a state of major reluctance.
I am used to doing poetry off the top of my head and for fun, but since reading and studying it out of the book I feel as if the fun I once felt has been sucked away like a vampire bat does with blood. Therefore I have been browsing around and found numerous websites to take information from – and then I thought why not share it!
http://www.wikihow.com/Write-a-Poem – this also comes with a nice little video with interviews of actual poets so enjoy this one too 🙂
