It's nearly time for us to release our very special, tenth birthday edition of Writ-Bits into the world! Writ-Bits is our annual anthology of writing by young Creative Write-it authors, and this year's theme is 'Journeys'. The anthology encapsulates all the different types of journeys we can go on, such as new beginnings, epic adventures, and the journeys that lead us home.
Here's a sneak peek of a poem from one of our talented young writers which will be included in the anthology. We think it does a wonderful job of capturing the excitement of going on a new adventure!
The Journey Ahead
Packing the matches, food, and water,
Sleeping bag, and camping gear.
I feel prepared and happy.
I have all I need, including beer.
In the morning, I find my jacket and wear
My beanie and my boots.
As I step out my front door,
I say a final goodbye to my roots.
I’m going on an adventure
To somewhere I don’t know.
It might be full of bears and bugs
Or maybe even crows.
The one thing that I know is this:
The mountain I must climb.
I still feel excited,
And I whistle a merry chime.
And here's what our young writer had to say about the inspiration behind their poem:
When I wrote this, I was feeling adventurous. I’m happy with how the poem turned out.
We're excited for you to read Writ-Bits and join us on more exciting journeys. Stay tuned for information about our end-of-year book launch AND birthday party ... coming soon!
