Dominican Study Group
Tonight was my turn to facilitate the Study Group. I chose to do a poetry workshop. We worked on:
Creativity--something different, something that'll stay with you.
Cohesiveness--does everything relate, all the metaphors tie together all the way through the poem?
Craftsmanship--use of metaphor, assonance, alliteration, form and structure.
Voice--attitude, personality, mood, rhythmic effectiveness.
We all enjoyed it. We laughed a lot. Some wrote silly limericks. Some were serious. Then we judge them all. The winner:
Slot machines galore
and poker's downstairs
roulette spins lure
black jack's over there.
And the senior citizens
play on and on,
sorry can't join you,
money's all gone!
Told you we had fun.
