Hey Guys, It’s Katherine! This is one of those little pieces that was written during my last day at Writer’s House. This is in dedication to my amazing friend Jade. We sat around during our free time on Friday and wrote love poems for each other. This girl stole my heart and I love her to pieces. So this is ‘Dear J’
Hey, it’s Katherine! This is one of my edited poems from the Writer’s House Course I went on in October. If you would like me to go through the editing process for this poem then leave me a comment. This particular poem was an exercise in list ‘How-to’ poems inspired by Dean Atta’s How to be a poet. I hope you enjoy x
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.
