Mystery Poem Week

This week pick out one of your own poems and a poem from an author you admire (preferably a poem we will not all recognize i.e. two roads diverged in a wood). Bring in 6-8 copies of these poems - remember no names on the print outs but be sure to remember the authors and sources.You can print them out yourselves or send your anonymous poems to or to my profile email here and I will print them out for you.  

The fun? Guessing who wrote what - Think you know everyone's style in the group? Let's put that to the test and mix it up a little.  Think "famous" poets are above critiquing?  Not today we critique everyone equally - well known poets and everyone else.

Too late to make a mystery poem no problem, just bring in 6-8 copies of your own individual creations. The more the merrier. 
Hope to see you and your mysteries in the basement of the UFL
