Helping you to connect with the writer within
Here’s a simple way of coming up with new poetry material; this exercise also broadens your vocabulary and deepens your use of it:
Look up a new word (use a website like Word Think or any Word of the Day sites and apps) and learn it, understand it. Think of how you can use it – is there an emotion you can put to it? Can you put a moment that you’ve ever experienced to this word? If it’s a noun, where would it be placed?
Gather your thoughts on this word and write a poem about it, expressing it or relating to it or use this word as the title.
