Tips to make the challenge more manageable

  • You could decide a theme for all of your poems in advance
  • If time is an issue you could write a verse each day

Ideas to make your poems a little more interesting

  • You could try making poems from words you cut out of magazines or newspapers.
  • You could make up a tune to go with your lyrics

Optional

At the end of the month, why not make a little video (up to three minutes long) and send it to us? Or send us some photos of your favourites. With your permission, we may even feature your video on our site!

And if you know any other creatives who might also enjoy this poetry challenge, why not encourage them to have a go!
