HW12D due 9/17: Handouts and Six Words and Letter to Rilke

1. Print out the following, put them in a folder and have them with you everyday in class!

2. A Letter to Rilke–(In your poetry journal) This letter should be a response to Rilke’s first letter. The more authentic your response, the more meaningful this exercise. The tone/voice of the letter should reflect your own tone/voice as related to the content of your letter. Let’s see how you do without a length requirement; I only ask that it be a meaningful composition.

3. The three rules of Poetry Seminar:

  • Take your time
  • Don’t be afraid
  • Always have a notebook with you (Fry)
