Poetry Writing Tips & Lesson Reminders

 

 

Educator's Corner

 

 

Come in please...

Try to think of writing poetry as playing a game with words.  The more you play, the better you become.  For instance, if you have ever played chess, you know it would make absolutely no sense to think you could win your first match.  Likewise, if you have ever bowled you know it would be unreasonable to think you should bowl a turkey every game as a beginner.  Yet, the more you practice any of these or any other task, the better you become.  The same concept applies to writing poetry.  So, try not to become frustrated, or discouraged, if your first poem, or even your first ten to fifteen poems, don’t turn out exactly as you would like.  Just keep writing and you will improve.
When you begin to write, try to follow these basic rules: 
  • Think of the initial writing as the foundation or skeleton of what’s to come.
  • Since correcting errors and worrying about how you're expressing yourself can cause you to forget your ideas, write all your ideas down first, and then correct mistakes while reviewing how you expressed yourself.
  • At first, only concern yourself with the beginning of the poem. Let it progress naturally to the end. And don't expect to know where that end will be because a poem may start in one place and end up someplace that's related to, yet at the same time, removed from wherever it began.
  • After you have all your ideas down, begin the editing process. Correct mispelled words. Make sure your work makes sense. Change words you don't like.
  • You might want to read the poem out loud. This will assist you in training your brain to pay more attention to what you already know you wrote. Which, in turn, will help you spot mistakes and weak areas that may be hiding in your writing.

    Who am I??

    Does anyone know who

    I am???

    I've resorted to calling myself

    "Silver Head" because I cannot remember my name.

     

    I think I've got that forgetful

    disease or condition or whatever

    it is. You know. Oh yeah, amnesia.

    So, I'm hoping someone out there

    can help me. So, PLEASE!!

     

    Someone... Tell me who I am...
