Example text

It’s a secret but . . I dreamt I . . Don’t . . I’d rather be . . I like . . If only . . WORKSHOP WORKSHOP Poetry 54 Metaphors in the outside world COLIN MACFARLANE: Go outside with a pen and notepad and describe anything at all – a tree, the weather, the sky, but without any clichés. Personify whatever you are describing. If it’s a tree, think: is it male or female? Old or young? What emotions does it feel? What would it say if it were human? What would it do? What would it enjoy or complain about?

Take a sheet of paper and draw a vertical line down the middle. Label one column ‘subjective’ and the other ‘objective’. In the ‘subjective’ column write about your own personal feelings and responses to your find – any words or phrases that come to mind. In the ‘objective’ column write only comments that are factual and descriptive, such as the size, shape and colour of the object/animal. Use all the senses – sight, smell, feel and so on – and include any similes or metaphors that you wish. Be as original as you can.

When I go into schools I tell children to trust their ears and to test their poems by reading them out loud. Something might look right on the page, but if you say it, it might not sound right. What general advice do you have on using words in a poem? JAMES CARTER: You do not have to use long or difficult words in a poem. Simple words – more often than not – are best. But if you want a poem to have a big impact upon your reader, you have to find fresh and exciting ways of expressing yourself. So rather than the lazy phrase ‘the wolf howled’ (which is over-used), try ‘the wolf wailed’ or ‘whined’ or ‘whimpered’.
