Stop by and say hello!
Hello, my dear mentors and mentees! I hope the course is going fine for you all, and that you're learning and enjoying yourself. Hopefully making friends, too! (:
First things first
There will be an interview article on brevity coming up. Please check it out! And maybe give it a fav because it deserves the exposure.
Poetry Course - Lesson 9
This 9th lesson focuses on brevity.
As before, a warning. Some of these articles may repeat each other, some may give different kinds of advice for the same topic - you can read them all, your mentor can read them and then explain to you, you can choose a few or just one to read; it's really all up to you. We're giving you the tools, but you shape your own course together.
write and submit one piece each to the groups SixWordStories, minimalit, the-haiku-club, and Multhaiku.
Rewrite a longer poem (yours or otherwise) using half the lines; highlight the essential parts and scrap the rest. As a super challenge, rewrite it using one third of the lines. (no smart cookiness allowed of course - lines around as long as the original's!).
So what do you want to see from us before the lesson is over?
From the activities above, if you do happen to write a piece resulting from them, please note us a link to it so we can include it in our Mentorship Project folder.
Do you need someplace to meet up and talk? A great idea is exchanging skype details, or meet up in theWrittenRevolution's chatroom, it's at your disposal. (:
