National Poetry Month: Write Your Own Poem

Now that you’ve had some time to look at the poetry written by others, it’s your turn to do a little writing.

Use your favorite poem to help you construct a poem. To do this, you can:

  • apply one of the themes from the poem
  • use the same form
  • choose an image to bounce off of
  • mimic the voice
  • apply the same lens (historical, feminist, Marxist, etc.)
