Acrostics are a fun poetic challenge. A bit like a puzzle! Choose a topic -- word or short phrase -- and write it vertically. Next to each letter, write a word, phrase, or complete sentence about the chosen topic beginning with that letter. It might take some fiddling, but it will come!

Here's an acrostic tribute to the Slice of Life Challenge, which I participate in every March. It’s tough going at times, but I wouldn’t give up participating in this wonderfully supportive community of writers for anything.
