What’s the difference between a list and a list poem? What happens if you cut a poem into 8 pieces and scramble them? How does poetry differ from other kinds of writing? Let’s work on writing the best poems in the world, using writing prompts and word banks! Then we will share them with the group and explore contests and journals where your poetry can be published.
