The return from break had everyone refreshed and excited for the second half of the semester. With the beginning of Spring and warmer weather (hopefully) in sight, we began preparations for the upcoming Spoken Word on Wednesday April 12th.
Inspired by “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird” by Wallace Stevens, the group thought of a prompt similar in nature. We ended up writing about “Five Pros or Cons about the Superpower of Shapeshifting. ” Everyone went straight to work drafting prose poems that explored the various facets of shapeshifting. Afterwards, we had a lively discussion of both the practical and philosophical merits and implications of shapeshifting.
Next week’s meeting will be in our usual spot in Don 360. We’ll write some more poetry/spoken word pieces, and perhaps even a practice Spoken Word.
