Day 12 – NaPoWriMo 2017 – Nick Names For You ;)

Published 12th April 2017 by viewsofpreethib

Day 12 – NaPoWriMo – Today’s Prompt (optional, as always) is, “I’d like you to write a poem that explicitly incorporates alliteration (the use of repeated consonant sounds) and assonance (the use of repeated vowel sounds). This doesn’t mean necessarily limiting yourself to a few consonants or vowels, although it could. Even relatively restrained alliteration and assonance can help tighten a poem, with the sounds reinforcing the sense. Need some examples. Here’s Gerard Manley Hopkins showcasing alliteration and assonance on overdrive. And here is a poem with a more restrained approach from Kevin Young“.
