Friday Writing Exercise

Today’s exercise is based off an earlier post on spinal poetics by one of our lovely poetry editors, Amber Beilharz.

It’s really easy. All you do is take a look around your room/study/batcave for a few books. Each title then becomes a line of a poem.

For example, here’s one from my own bookshelf:

my love must wait / beyond the kubea / rabbit in arms.

Try it yourself. You can turn these fragments into entire poems, or even paragraphs of prose.

Experiment and have fun. You’ll be surprised by what you can come up with.

Feel free to comment below with your own book title poems. Alternatively, tweet it to us: @VoiceworksMag. We’d love to hear from you.
