Keep in mind, this is a monitored group and there are only a couple of rules, which are:
Make sure you put this (WWE, 12/5/12, Children) in your title.
Be sure to tag it with WWE, Gather Writing Essentials, Children. Post to Gather Writing Essential.
I ask that you make your submission(s) by next Tuesday afternoon.
There is a limit of three submissions from each member per day. If you’re extremely prolific, spread out your work and post only three submissions per day.
Put this challenge statement at the beginning or end of your submission so readers will know what you’re supposed to do and won’t think you’re crazy.
Challenge: Take an old cartoon, child’s story or nursery rhyme and make it politically correct (by today’s standards). That, of course, means a complete re-write of the original.
BELOW ARE RESPONSES TO PRIOR CHALLENGES – CHECK THEM OUT. Who would have guessed that such talented poets would satisfy my desire to understand their work? Thanks guys!
