I was thrilled to be invited to join Nancy Tupper Ling‘s #AuthorAcrostic series. You may know Nancy from her children’s books:
I have to be honest. I did not know exactly what an acrostic poem was when she asked me. I looked it up. It does not have to be rhyming but I found the examples that I found rhymed and used them as inspiration.
An acrostic is a poem in which the first letter of each line spells out a word, message or the alphabet.
For Nancy’s series, each author uses his or her name. The acrostic poems do no have to be rhyming. Check out her series here.
My acrostic poem used my entire name (because Mia is only three letters), and the topic is boxing.
