Hi everyone,

It’s the time of year when many of us are thinking of giving, so what better to prompt your creativity than a gift tag. Don’t let the image limit you, though. Gifts can be many and varied and some of the most memorable we receive are not material. Time…thoughtfulness…caring and consideration…friendship… See what you can come up with in a poem for children.

Thank you to all the wonderful poets submitting regularly to this site. Your contributions are much appreciated. Please keep them coming. I love reading your work and sharing it with our growing list of followers.

Send your poems to me at traffa-m@bigpond.net.au as a Word or text document attachment and add a few lines about your writing process.

Happy writing!

Write an alphabet poem

poemhandEach line must start with a letter of the alphabet in order. Play with the idea. Use all or some of the letters, but wherever you start your poem, the first letter of each line must follow the order of the alphabet. Do you feel challenged? Inspired? Let’s see what you come up with this week. Send your poems as a Word document attachment to traffa-m(at)bigpond.net.au and add a line or two about your writing process or how you tackled this week’s creative challenge.
