Writer’s Journal: Writing about Grandparents

Poems written by young people about their grandparents can be found on The Poetry of Aging: Grandparents website. Read several poems, and record in your journal the feelings described by the writers.

Now that you are inspired, write a letter, poem, or story in honor of one of your grandparents or of another older person in your life. Use vivid, interesting language to convey your feelings about that person.
