HW due 2/24: Confessional Poem

1. Confessional Poetry–The linked reading is quite brief, yet gives us a sense of the nature of confessional poetry. Read it closely please in preparation for your own confessional poem.  

2. 30 Word Poem–Due Thursday! Emphasis on arrangement of stanzas, punctuation, and the use of metaphor/imagery. Continue to avoid stale/trite images. Theme is up to you!

2. Poems by Anne Sexton (Print, Read, and Annotate for tomorrow):

3. (Looking Ahead) Writing Workshop:

  • In your poetry journal brainstorm subjects for your confessional poem. Broadly, the subject is you of course! But more specifically, what aspect(s) of YOU would you like to share via poetry?
