Poetry Tips: Poetry In The News

Today I challenge you to take the latest headlines either globally or within your community and turn them into poems. Depending on the community you live in you could find plenty of strange incidents to write about. I heard a new story the other day of a woman whose foot was broken because of a runaway thief who ran smack into her. That’s certainly an entertaining headline compared to which celebrities are getting married vs. getting divorced, don’t you think? Find something in the news that makes your eyebrows rise and write about it.

Good luck to all who try and please stop in Monday for another featured site…
