ArchiTEXTS- Poetry Activity
An easy to use frame for writing poetry in response to a building, space or place. Written by Maureen Almond, this helpsheet outlines some simple steps in which even the most nervous writer can create a poem: 'The whole idea with this approach is to help students build a template for themselves on which they can ?hang? a poem. I think to ask people who are unused to writing poetry, simply to write a poem can be quite daunting. By the time they have ?built a template? most of the really hard work is done ? they have done the thinking, creating and also in a way, the planning too. This technique can be applied no matter what the subject, all that is necessary is that you vary the questions to make them relevant.'
