We began workshop for Poem #1 today. Students took turns reading their poems out loud, and then the rest of the class gave them feedback on what worked well and what could be improved. Think of this feedback as a cheat-sheet for the final that will help you make the best revisions possible. We got through four poems today, and we will continue workshopping till we have no poems left.
This class will be an opportunity for you to express yourself creatively through writing. You will get a chance to try many different genres of writing and practice the writing process. You will get to help others improve their writing, and the favor will be returned to you with your own writing. By the end of the class, you will develop a portfolio of your best, most polished work.
