Temple Poetry Reading
This was my first poetry reading and i enjoyed the experience. It was interested to see how many ways poetry can be read, especially the differences in pacing and tone. The collage poem was also interesting because it was a concept i had not thought of before seeing it in action at the poetry reading. The atmosphere was positive and i felt it went a long way in helping the poets feel comfortable reading their poetry. I think a poetry reading the best possible way to wrap up this kind of course because the diversity encountered at the poetry reading can inspire poets to experiment with form and help them in garnering the courage to read their own poetry aloud.
