Today in the Art&Seek Spotlight we feature Ready to Write at the Denton Public Library North Branch. For more on the event:
FIND: For directions to the library, visit the branch’s organization profile or the library’s Web site. And for more information on the library’s second annual writing contest, click here.
REACT: If you had to pick the best poem you’ve ever read, what would it be? It seems like many of the classics are ones that involve a rhyme scheme, but is iambic pentameter passé at this point?
DISCUSS: Is there a technique to poetry writing that anyone could pass along? Poetrymagic.co.uk has a useful eight-step plan to getting started. Ehow.com shortens the process to six steps.
CREATE: Should anyone decide to enter the contest, we would love to post your submission. Feel free to post it as a comment here or e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org
