Writers at Home
Hello again to all you young writers out there!
The last two writing challenges have been in the form of diary entries and so I thought it would be good to have a change.

Finally, include any illustrations that you wish.
Once again, I would love to read your finished poem. You could email it to me or send it via my Facebook page.
