Writer's Craft: Alliteration

Alliteration is the repetition of the initial consonant. There should be at least two repetitions in a row and usually more than two.  Write two sentences in the comment section that demonstrate alliteration.  Write your sentences about two family members. 


Alliteration is pleasing to the ear so many writers use alliteration to make their stories and poems appealing to the reader.


Poetry Examples of Alliteration:


Thoughts travel through words
Make marvelous metaphors
Producing poems



by Marinela Reka
