Dear Writers Write Followers

This is the week when we ask you to help support and grow Writers Write. If everybody reading this gave $10, our fundraiser would be over in a few days. We are a small company that carries the costs of top website servers, staff, and programmes. We think Writers Write is special. It is a library for writers. Everything you need is on the site. If Writers Write is special to you too, please take a minute to donate to keep us online and growing. Thank you!

Day 30


Welcome to Day 30 of Hooked on Writing, your free online writing course. This online workbook will help you create a writing habit in 31 days.

Ode to my knees

Aim:

Poetry can gives us fresh eyes as writers. It allows us to see ourselves and our creativity differently.

How:

Make a list of three of your body parts you like and three that you don’t.

  1. Write a short poem about a body part you like but make it sound like your worst feature.
  2. Then…write a short poem about a body part you don’t like but make it sound like your best feature.

You may use free verse or any other poetic structure.
