Things Poetry Workshop Leaders Say


No, you don’t have to underline the title

I don’t care if you write the date

Don’t worry about spelling

There are no right or wrong answers

Use your imagination

Can you be more specific?

I don’t know – ask your teacher

Are you always this crazy?

You have ten more minutes

5, 4, 3, 2, and...1.

Share your poems on your tables

Ooh look! A butterfly! (we have short attention spans)

Wow, that was amazing

Thank you for sharing

Stay fabulous!
