Try It

I sometimes write poetry for fun but after writing my evaluation paper, it made me realize a lot of the "good" and "bad" in my own poetry. Comparing the evaluation helped me understand how much poetry is a part of literature and all of the little nuances that are involved in writing "good" poetry.

My challenge to you all is to try to write your own poem while keeping in mind what you find to be "good" in poetry and comment on your experience please! I hope it will be a rewarding experience. (If you like, you can post your poem for all of us to read.)

Some thoughts to think about after: Was it hard to keep to your evaluations? Did the experience change any of your evaluations?

  1. I love this idea, although it might be a bit unfair to ask others to post poems without posting one yourself. : )
