Tips to make things a little more manageable
- You could decide a theme for all of your poems in advance
- You could write short poems if time is an issue, or simply write a verse each day
Ideas to make your poem a little more interesting
- You could try making poems from words you cut out of magazines or newspapers.
- You could create a drawing or take a photo to go with your poem
- You could use calligraphy to write your poem
- You could decorate the page around your poem
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 challenge, why not encourage them to have a go!

Every October Jake Parker challenges artists all over the world to create one ink drawing a day for the entire month. Jake originally created Inktober back in 2009 to improve his inking skills and develop a positive drawing habit and the challenge snowballed from there.
