Explaining the Poetry Toolbox (Yes, every good poet has one!)
What do we mean by imagery and how to add colour to our poetry writing including use of adjectives, similes and metaphors and use examples of these.
Begin writing before close of session. Friends can write in pairs/group if they'd prefer.
Continue writing, with Debra's guidance throughout.
Writing. Edit if required. Debra's guidance throughout.
