Poetry Course

One of the courses I’m taking this semester is a poetry writing course. To say I’m out of my element is a huge understatement. I’m finding this course really difficult as it’s online and there is almost no direction whatsoever. All it contains is here is a poet, read their body of work and create poems like theirs. That’s it! Marks wise I’m doing OK but I’m certainly not enjoying this course.

I just looked at my next assignment. I have to create 10 (yes, 10) poems that are on a current social issue. Here is the actual assignment…

Writing Assignments:

Collection of Poetry (10), directed at a cultural, social, or modern day theme.

Rationale for Collection – one page analysis of your collection of poetry.

Due Date: March 29, 2019

How is that for clear instructions?!

I’m drawing an absolute blank on what to write about. Never has my inspiration been so far out of reach!

  1. If it was me, I’d write about politics, without naming names, or the health industry, or mental health, or stigma in general. Hope that helped!


    1. Thank you. I’ve actually decided on the news industry. You know, fake news, how it’s accessible 24 hours a day, what it used to be, loss of integrity, that sort of thing.
