In this Bright Sparks Creative Burst explore hidden stories by using everyday junk found around the house to inspire us to create some original pieces of work. With a little inspiration from Sarah Crossan’s #wearethepoets postcards, Sarah Webb uses blackout poetry and highlights words to make a poem. Download the materials to create some poetry or prose of your very own!
This week’s Creative Bursts video with Sarah Webb is inspired by sea glass and beach treasure! Sarah helps us create stories and poems using her writing prompts. Happy writing!
