Jumbo Journal GroupShop, Week 4

Spontaneous Poetry was on tap for this week.  It’s easy, relaxing, expressive and turns everyone into a modern poet.

Here’s how:

  1. Cut words, phrases out of newspaper and magazines.
  2. When you’ve gotten a good pile of words focus on a theme, feeling, issue etc.
  3. Arrange the words on a blank sheet of paper to create a NON-rhyming poem (often called “free verse”)
  4. You can cut out individual letters to create plurals, prepositions, change tenses etc or simply write them in.
  5. Paste them down, paint them, outline them or leave them plain and you’re done!
Take a look!

  1. I can’t wait to have enough read magazines (rare in this household) and newspapers (we’re about a week behind) to do this! I will try and take a picture and post it of my endeavo(u)r. Thanks for sharing the workshop!


  2. I was so sad I couldn’t be a part of this! Hopefully next time!

    I watched the sunset from my living room this evening and thought of you, about this time of year three years ago, I came to your desprerate and sad. Now I’m giggling with gratitude that I get to watch the sunset from my living room, that I live the life I do. I can’t tell you how much you have changed my life. I have never been happier!

    Hope you are the same.

    Tons of hugs and love,
