Emphasis will be on both reading poems as a source for writing poems and on revision techniques.
Techniques to be covered each week are as follows:
Week One: Drop a mouse into a poem (use the random)
Week Two: Duplicate the mouse (write you own version of a poem)
Week Three: Let the mouse sing his own squeak (use a persona)
Week Four: Bring in the mouse chorus (use repetition)
