Tis my turn to captain the Poetry Bus!
I'll keep this quick and to the point.
Creativity should take you new places so,
You have to:
1. Go somewhere new.
2. Experience it.
3. Write about it.
If you like, you can write about an old memory that comes to mind while there (this often happens when somewhere new- if it doesn't, just write about the experience)
And you can link the experience and the memory if you're feeling adventurous.
The poem cannot be more than 40 lines long
The poem shouldn't rhyme. Aim for similar line length, giving a nice shape to the poem.
ie none of this -
I wandered lonely as a cloud
Pissing on flowers was disallowed.
I like this rule because it means I have to avoid rhyming, its one of my filthiest habits.
Seeing as this is just a bit of fun, that's not a hard and fast rule.
But break it and I will find you and kill you.
Also - somewhere new can be anywhere. But try and be imaginative, you're an artist, ya lazy bum.
Some places are off limits.
-Anywhere within a mile of home.
Go forth and poetify, my passengers.
See yiz on Monday.
