And now a moment with Andre the Giant, wrestler and poet. . . .
You had to know this was coming. For our asynchronous work this week, take some time, don't be too self-conscious, write a poem. Just try. It's good for the soul.
Think about the list from our ICRN. Think about it from a writer's standpoint instead of a reader's standpoint this time:
Once you've posted, read your colleague's pieces. Congratulate each other. Identify a few poems that really speak to you and tell the writer how and why it speaks to you.
