Making - up Poems


Welcome to English - Speaking Club. Last month we had a variety of topics discussed:
7.09. Getting acquainted.
14.09. Making - up poems.
Are you fond of Shakespeare, Byron, Burns? Are you dreaming about composing verses yourself? Aren't you aware of how to do it? Then you are welcome here to make a try! Our new volunteer Arden told about the main principles of writing verses. Everyone was given his own topic and was offered to create a small verse. The friendly atmosphere of the club encouraged the participants to open the hidden talents. The task was rather puzzling but nevertheless at the end everyone was ready to perform his work.
28.09. Asking questions.
