Due 9/14: Class Forum

1. Class Forum–Six Word Poem/Story (Remember, you should print YOUR response before class). Due by midnight tonight!

For Sale: Baby Shoes, Never Worn

Tonight, you will write  your six word poem/story. Consider each word and consider the story you want to communicate through those six words.  In the example above (attributed to Hemingway) there is great depth to that narrative. Imagine the joy, the anticipation, the inspiration, the anxiety, the tragedy, the despair behind those words… All of that and more communicated through six words. Be scrupulous in your selection of words, be thoughtful in your arrangement, be authentic in holistic composition.

2. College Office visits tomorrow!

3. Thursday, September 15–In-Class writing assignment on Letters to a Young Poet. So, be sure to have the book in class!
