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…
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!
