Poetry bingo

Poetry can feel intimidating sometimes.

Playing Poetry Bingo encourages people to suggest their favourite poems, as well as creating something new from them.

  • Write down a well-known poem
  • Cut out each line
  • Put each line in a hat or bag
  • Ask someone to randomly pick a line and read it out
  • Now make a poem or verse starting with this line of poetry

It can be scary looking at a blank page and trying to write a poem.

This exercise gives people a good starting point to work from.
