Drafty Weekend

In my creative writing class, we have entered into the poetry unit of the course, and my students have drafts of three poems due Thursday.  We have not entered form yet — I really want them to look at image and active language instead of worrying about rhyme scheme.  Since I have not drafted anything new in weeks, I am taking on the challenge to have three poetry drafts completed by Thursday.  So far so good — I have one draft done. 


  1. I love being inspired by my students and classes like this. Good luck with your drafts. (Oh, and I concur about waiting to introduce form until after student’s have tackled imagery and language.)

  2. Karen Said:

    Thanks Sandy — I actually have all three done now — I draft on paper — I just have to type them for a clearer look! So, I made my goal.
