I’ve been Wordled…

Yesterday, at a workshop in Utrecht given by dedicated and inspiring English teacher, Roy Bicknell, I was introduced to Wordle and its possible uses in vocabulary lessons for business English students. As a writer, it struck me as a fantastic way of adding visual impact to poems  or flash fiction and perhaps incorporating the poem’s/flash fiction’s meaning on a subconscious level. All these pieces have been inspired by a visual prompt, three of which I have displayed. If you would like to read the poems or flash in their original form (unWordled) please follow these links:
