We're going to do impressions of some distinctive writing styles, including newspaper reports, lyric poetry, and online game reviews. To give us something to write about, we'll use this picture as inspiration.

We'll do five exercises. For each exercise, you'll get a snippet in a particular style, and then an example showing how you could apply that style to the image. 

Once you submit, you’ll be able to read and react to responses from others in your group.

If you're ready, let's write!
