Welcome to the Saturday Mix, 6 June 2020!
This week we are dipping our toes into the pool of OPPOSITES. Our challenge is all about “opposing forces” and the use of antithesis in our writing. You will need to use the two opposing words in your response – which can be poetry or prose.
Our words this week are:
– absence and presence
– construct and destruct (suffixes may be added e.g. – ed / -ion)

Whereas many authorities had intentions of the destruction of their natural habitat under the excuse of progress, a group of private individuals had banded together to construct alternative sites and reintroduce the waning species with a breeding programme.
