Spilling everything on the page, showing how being human is a beautiful battle.

BONUS RUCKUS: The “PERSONIFY THIS!” Writing Challenge! stuffYour host NICHOLAS DAVIS has too much stuff in his book bag sometimes. We thought we’d make good use of this and see what our Gerunders can do with some on-the-spot writing for prizes! Reach into the bag of stuff at the start of the show, write a short poem during the first half using our good friend personification (look it up) and deliver your original piece at half time for prizes and glory! Who knows what you’ll find in there. You might wanna wear gloves!
