(A little piece I submitted for my Creative Writing module at Uni.)
Once upon a time in a land far, far away lived an assortment of famous fairytale characters each battling with a bout of almighty dilemmas. Fortunately help is at hand with the swish of her wand and some mighty sound advice from the one and only Fairy Godmother and her fairytale problem page.
This is a little poem I have written for my Creative Writing module at Uni.
Happy January all 🙂
‘Twas the night before Christmas and down the rain poured,
Black cloud coated skies as the icy wind roared,
But in slippers and snow-patterned socks sitting cosy
Were a family of five with their cheeks red and rosy.
This year I reluctantly signed up to a Creative Writing module on my course at University, and recently we were set a task to write a piece to submit and have our classmates read and evaluate.
As you’d expect, upon hearing that I had to do this I went into panic mode, wondering how in the hell I was ever going to pull this off.
I’ve loved books for as long as I can remember. As a child, my parents and I would read Shirley Hughes, Janet and Allan Ahlberg, Lyn Wendon, Michael Rosen and Val Biro, the latter of which visited my primary school when I was six and kindly signed my ‘Gumdrop Goes To School’ book for me.
