Here are the five challenges. I have been posting some of them as they come. Especially the photo ones. And will do if I can on tour.
P l e a s e s a y w h i ch c h a l l e n g e i t ‘ s f o r! And send me your name, age, year and name of school.
Challenge number one: Write a poem that is inspired by another poem. See here for details. I will post favourites and have copies of the Treasury for a few (or another book if you have it already!).
Challenge number two: Write a poem and then write that poem with surprising things in surprising places (sand, mud, window). Take a photo and send it to me. I will post them as I get them and will have two $50 book vouchers for my favourites. See here for details.
Challenge number three: Take a photo of yourself reading a poetry book in a great place to read a poetry book. Your parent will need to send me permission so I can post it. I will post while I am on tour and will have two $50 book vouchers for my favourites after November 8th. See here for details.
Challenge Number 4 Take one of the titles I have given you from the Treasury and use it as the title of your poem. Go here for the titles. I have a copy of The Treasury for one or two poets but will post my favourites. Deadline Wednesday November 14th.
Challenge Number 5 Make a poem video. You would have to use one of my poems or a poem you have written. Or you can pick a poem from the Treasury and I can see if I can get permission from the author. Otherwise we will run into copyright issues. You would have to post it on YouTube and send me the link. See here for details. I have a copy of The Treasury for one or two poets but will post my favourites. Deadline Wednesday November 14th.
