Creative Writing 1 ~ Begin class with a 10-minute free write. Announcements. Patrons of $25 is due by March 11. Help publish the AHS lit mag! Poetry workshop. Offer positives and suggestions for improvement for group 1 poets. HW: Critique poems for group 2 to prepare for workshop next class. If you revise your poem, attach the revision to the original copy with the rubric I graded for you. The new grade will override the first one, but Ms. Wood MUST have the revision within a week of completing workshop on your particular poem. After all, polishing the craft is just as important as creating it to begin with.
