Our first school brought us some of the most tremendous student writers. This poem, THE A TRAIN is a special one!
Sestinas are one of those forms where you either love or despise it. I was really proud of Kasandra: she committed to telling this story and it is tremendous!
This poem was written by Pilar Johnson, in her senior year of high school. This was inspired by the great Jeanann Verlee and her poem, Unsolicited Advice to Adolescent Girls with Crooked Teeth and Pink Hair. Here, our students aim to use repetition and specific imagery to create a story unique to them and wise words that they, too, need to hear.
Happy 2019, y'all! New Years Resolution: Here at Left2Write we want to make it even easier to write WITH US! Every month, (hopefully) on the first, we will leave a fun writing prompt or challenge! Comment with your writing and indicate if you would like feedback!
Here is this month's writing challenge:
Write passive-aggressive love notes to the things about least that you're not-quite-sure-you're-ready-to-let-go-of. Write them down and let 'em go. Cue the FROZEN lyrics.
