Hey guys, its Katherine! I was rummaging through my old files and I found this piece I wrote way back in year 9 when we did our anti-smoking campaigns. I thought it was quite nice to share it with you all. Updates for my new series on my time in writers house coming soon xx
I’m really excited to be able to tell you that I have started work on my debut novel!
Hey Guys and Girls, it’s Katherine. This one has been quite a hard poem to post. Last week I was confirmed as a member of the Church of England. I have been on an alpha course and over the last couple of months, my faith has grown so enormously. I feel so loved and blessed by the family I have grown in the church and in the friendships that will stay with me all the days of my life. This poem is my ode to the love that I bare for my saviour Jesus Christ and how I can see him at work.
This question stumped me for a little while as to what to write. It is a question filled with hope and ideas for a better future and yet it is so grounded in our daily reality.
I have been meaning to post more and share more stuff about myself and who I am as an individual and I thought that a really nice way of doing this would be with one of those 5-year Q and A journals. I don’t think I’ll be doing these questions for five years but we can start with one and see where we go.
This is a piece of descriptive writing for question 5 on the new AQA English Language GCSE Exams. I’m so pleased with my results I got a Level 8 in English Language and a Level 7 in English Literature. I couldn’t find the exact picture that was in the mock test but we had to write a story about a lighthouse in a storm. It’s important to remember for anyone sitting the exams that the mark scheme is the same for descriptive writing as it is for writing a story, so make sure you write a very descriptive story with only a couple of events within it. I scored 28/40 for this question. I’m not sure about content and grammar marks exactly but I hope you enjoy x
There is something strangely soul-for-filling about lighting candles. In churches, we use them to remember those we have lost. They take our prayers with them up the wandering path of heaven.
Hey guys, it’s your girl Katherine with some hopefully uplifting rhyme in an odd sort of way (life is bad for everyone at times, we might as well laugh about it). From next week it will hopefully start being some of my newer work rather than my old, found pieces because as much as I like to recover old poetry, it is always nice to write the new things too! Anyhow, I thought I would share this with you today enjoy!
Hey guys, it’s Katherine. This is one of the poems I talked about in my previous post My experience with Young Writers. This is the more recently written of the two and covers an important message I feel should be shared. I was so incredibly thrilled when the letter came saying I had been published in the ‘teenage voices’ anthology. Be sure to check them out https://www.youngwriters.co.uk/. I am going to start regularly posting my own poetry as encouragement to myself to improve my craft. For the first couple of posts, it will be work that I have already written and want to share. If there are any topics you would like me to write about send me a message, whether it be any tips and tricks or themes for poems you want me to write. Anyway… on to the poetry!
