Poetry Workshop next semester received this packet of terms from Survey Poetry: survey-poetry-study-guide-final-exam-2017

There will be a test on these terms on the first day of workshop: Monday, Jan. 23.

You have two additional things to do for this Friday. First, I gave out a packet of “self-portrait” poems (see me if you were absent to get a copy). You are to write a self-portrait poem of any type — based on one of the poems in the packet, or not. This must be turned in via typewritten hard copy at the beginning of first block Friday.

Second, you are to post your first poem — whether it’s the self-portrait poem, an old poem, or something else brand new — on the blog by 8:45 a.m. Friday. I will make up packets and give them out so we can start workshop next week!

(This means we’ll need to invite everyone to the blog, which is currently being set up. We’ll do that tomorrow.)

If you are in

Fiction Workshop next semester, you need to download this packet fiction-workshop-1-17-pre-class-material  and complete the assignment for next week. Don’t miss the part where you need to pick a story from the Norton Anthology.
