In 2011 I graduated with 1st class honours in Creative Writing from Bath Spa University. I lived in China for nearly two and a half years, where I was working as an English teacher. I just moved to Tokyo where I will be spending my time teaching and writing. This blog is about my experiences of TEFL teaching and living abroad.

A Dirty Weekend with Shakespeare, Blake and Elizabeth Browning

Just a quick one for you - been doing a little cut-up poetry for my experimental poetry homework. Cut-up poetry is when take a poem or several, of your own or by other people, and literally just cut them up and paste it back together to make something new. You can even splice in things that aren't poetry, like lyrics, newspaper cutting, anything. So I took three of the most famous love sonnets ever written, and on a bit of a gigglish school girl whim, I put it back together trying to find as many inappropriate innuendos as possible. Childish, I know, but terrible fun! Hope you enjoy :)
