Literary Devices from A to Z

A to Z Challenge logo

Graphic from

First there was NaNoWriMo – write an entire novel in 30 days during the month of November. Now there’s the A to Z Challenge – post 26 blogs in the month of April (Sundays not included), each blog on a different topic, each featuring a different letter of the alphabet.

Piece of cake, no?

Announcing my first attempt at the A to Z Challenge (drumroll, please?): Literary Devices from A to Z, a device a day for your literary pleasure.

To help illustrate each device, I’ll be relying heavily on my own reading and (especially) writing experience. The whole point of this exercise is to be read and make connections with my fellow blog-writers, so participants are asked to visit at least 5 participant blogs a day in addition to posting. I’m including the Linky list with the other theme listings with this post and every other Challenge post, in case you’re interested.

Wish me luck!

  1. I look forward to what you will be doing with this. I am actually doing something very similar, where I am doing Literary terms. Some I had to be a little creative on for what I’m doing specifically. You should check mine out as well.

    Good luck! Literary devices sounds most interesting and I’m dying to know what you came up with for z and x. X was a real pain for me and my theme 🙂

    Thanks, Tasha.

    Haven’t thought that far ahead yet. Had to fudge a few along the way so far. Guess I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it.

    Best wishes.

    Hallo, Hallo fellow A2Z’er!

    I had a bit of a “late, late” like the Rabbit of Alice in Wonderland start to the A to Z Reveal today! Thankfully, everyone has been posting their Reveal posts to Twitter, and thereby, I am able to visit & hop! 🙂

    Being a fellow writer & reader, I am most keen to see where you take your A2Z Posts!! 🙂 Drawing out from your own experiences will surely keep in a heap of antidotes & observations! I’ve added you to my A2Z Bloggers list on Twitter! This way, I can find all your future posts with ease!

    How a wicked sweet time blogging!
    I’m quite excited myself! 🙂
    I’m a first timer btw!
