Poetry is a form of writing that I am relatively familiar with. A class that we wrote a substantial amount of poetry in is our 6th Grade I.S. class. This class helped give me confidence to be able to write poetry and express my feelings with confidence. One of the things that I am looking forward to doing this year in poetry is learning the different types of poems. One of the challenges for me will be whether or not I will be able to move people with my writing while still fitting the format of the guidelines. My favorite type of poetry is free verse. I love free verse given that I get to express myself without having to worry about modifying my work in order to make it fit a certain template. Overall, I am excited to challenge my self with this unit and get the most out of it as I can.
