Stirred Poetry Adverts Workshop

Adverts Workshop on Thursday 26th November 2015, with Anna Percy and Lenni Sanders

  1. Write about tampon and sanitary towel advertising: 

Extract from Lenni Sander’s Tampon piece:

This slim white tube promises me
my happiness
in the dreamy commercial
it fluffs up like a poodle
in the innocuous water

2. Write a poem about yourself in the form of an advert. Use the conceit in poem ‘Advertisement’ and the idea of describing what product you are and how to use.
