In this morning’s demonstration, Elizabeth led us to choose a piece of writing and identify 20 important words or phrases. I selected my first blog post— a reflection on my earliest days as a UIWP fellow in 2010. I used the list to generate the following found poem
Project is underway
I don’t like to write
Lifelong laborious chore
Want to enjoy
In the company of talented educators
I’m guessing that having a shared experience made it easy for Karla (my partner) to pull out the intended meaning, which would be the same as my post. I think it would be interesting to use the list with a different lense to try to create something unconnected. I’ll think on that.
