It’s Tuesday, time to share slices at Two Writing Teachers.
Last month, I held my first ever 30 Day poetry challenge around a theme. In the past, I have written a poem a day but this year, I decided to step it up. My theme, “Double LL”.
Here’s some things I discovered:
~creating a list before the month was helpful as was setting up the template for the thirty days.
~researching the words was a blast. I found that the research informed how I would approach the poem.
~some words demanded a certain form.
~being able to prepare posts ahead is preferable than writing on the fly.
~connecting with community inspires.
~I liked engaging others with the words.
~wonder how to engage students into writing a poem a day next year.
~am thinking about the words for next year.
Congratulations to Carol Wilcox. She was selected to get a copy of The Poetry Friday for Celebrations.
