Write Your Own Poems, Lyrics and Songs

A series of fun, short, creative activities by musician Greg Russell

Luke Carver Goss plays his accordion and laughs, a man is playing his guitar

Our musician Greg Russell has developed some exercises and prompts to help you to create new poems, lyrics and songs. These exercises can be done with just paper and a pen or pencil. You could try singing your words to the tune of a well-known song, or they could just stay as poems! Download the full resource pack here.

We would love to see what you come up with so please tag us on social media using the details below, or share your creations with us via e-mail at
