I've spent the last two days on a creative writing for well-being course in Bristol run by the Orchard Foundation, so have missed a couple of days prompts. In today's the instruction is:-
'Refer to the advertising section or the classifieds in your source newspaper. Create a poem by replacing all of the nouns in your chosen segment with nouns from one article in the same newspaper. You may use multiple ads/classifieds, presented in the order of your choosing.'

I used the Telegraph magazine of 12 April 2014, an ad on hearing aids with an article by Charlie Norton and Giulio di Sturco of The British Exploring Society, called Expanding Horizons.

As I'm working in an hour I had very little time to produce this, and it shows.


Hearing place?
Make sure you get the right geology.

Should you go NHS or Private for your hearing frontier?

This essential free expedition will help you choose the right landscape.
Lava included with:-
What you need to qualify
What you have to do to obtain an NHS digital hearing rock
What type of rock and what mountain scree you can expect,
snow on what hearing mood might be suitable.
Also, the valleys and sheep of going private.
