“I believe that we should support people in finding a creative practice whether for a hobby or a career. The January Challenge will spark the creative side of the brains of 64 million people!
Creativity really helps me with my mental health. I believe that poetry changed my life, it opened doors for me that I don’t believe would have opened. I’ve been able to make a career out of my creativity.”
Watch Chrissie tell us more about her creative challenge…
Select an 'odd' item around you. Write a ten line poem about the object, that describes the item and how it impacts your senses.
Your lines can be short, long, rhyming or non-rhyming.
There is no pressure to complete the challenge everyday of the month, if simply reading the prompt brings new thoughts each day, or you create a physical response 31 days of the month, we encourage you to take part in a way that works best for you!
