Poetry writing

Write your own poem. Think about what type of poem you will create (an acrostic poem, a shape poem, a narrative poem, a Haiku etc). Choose a theme for your poem. Think about the language you will use and how you will include figurative language.  Plan, write and perform your own poem.
