Spit Poetry

twsummer2016-300x3001

Good morning! It’s time for your last Tuesday Quick-Write of the summer, and our guest today is Nanci Turner Steveson. Nanci is the author of SWING SIDEWAYS, a great new novel for middle grade readers, and she joins us today to talk about “spit poetry.”

Today’s assignment: Try this yourself now… Take something you literally just spit out and see where you end up after using this little trick. Would love to hear how it worked for you, and/or your students.

Happy sculpting!

The emotional tug in your heart from an animal can be overwhelming.   Samantha Jean arrived on payday in my office, found in a box on the street corner by an employee.  I took her out of the box and put her on the carpet where she was shivering and whining.  I gave her some milk in a bowl since that was the only food in the office. She lapped it right up as the employee left with his paycheck leaving me with this pathetic looking pup.

A pet can create an overwhelming emotional tug that takes over your heart. Samantha Jean arrived in a box found on a nearby street corner by an employee on payday. She was shivering and was quietly whining.  I gave her a bowl of milk and she lapped it right up. Meanwhile, the employee got his paycheck and left without a word, leaving me with this pathetic looking pup.
