Preparing for an epic (poem) adventure!

12 more days until the next Perfectly Poetical Tuesday! I'd said the style this time is "epic," but "mini-epic" might be more accurate. If you want to go on for pages, that's fine, but I'll be trying to insert the flavor of an epic into a much shorter poem.

With that in mind, here are some tips on how to write an epic poem.

You can also find some examples of epic poems on Wikipedia.

This may be a trickier one to get the kids involved in, but younger children can still help you come up with a topic or find rhyming words.

Happy writing!
