Select a name from one of your newspaper articles, famous or
not. Compose a poem using only words that can be made from
the letters in that person’s name. For example, if you selected
“John Travolta,” you may only use words that can be made from
the letters A, J, H, L, N, O, R, T and V.
The use of web-based tools is highly encouraged to help uncover
different words that can be made from your letters of choice.
One tool you might consider is the Scrabble Word Finder
