A poet who reads his verse in public may have other nasty habits.

— Robert Heinlein

DURING TODAY'S SESSION...

EXPLORE THE TOPICS FURTHER WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS...

  • In preparation for Workshop 14, read Handout 1, Preparing for the Poetry Slam Review, that was distributed during Workshop 12.
  • The Heinlein quote is a humorous remark concerning poetry readings. It often helps to keep a sense of humor about performances. Think about your experience of the Poetry Slam. Were you nervous? Did you make a mistake? Did you feel the audience was responsive? Was there any part of your experience that was funny or amusing? People often say that experience is a great teacher. What has this experience taught you?
