Good Morning everyone! I recently had the opportunity to attend a english poetry workshop and came across a neat exercise that I believe would make a great challenge for many! 1. Using 3 alliterations, name a protagonist along with his or her nationality and occupation. 2. Using personification, create a conflict for your protagonist. 3. Using assonance, ask a question. 4. Use an adjective, a concrete noun, and then an abstract noun (in that order). 5. Use a simile in a subordinate clause, and a repetition in an independent clause. 6. Use an example of synesthesia. 7. Using consonance, answer the question in line 3. 8. This line must be written in iambic pentameter. 9. This line must include dialogue and the name of a provincial or state capital. 10. Using an oxymoron, resolve your protagonist's conflict. My Attempt: 1. Kenny was a Canadian caribou-hunter 2. Who spent his workdays on the cruel tundra. 3. How could he repair his wrecked complexion? 4. His face was a wrinkled map, filled with sorrow. 5. Like a little schoolgirl, he wept and wept. 6. Then, over a cauldron of deafening soup, 7. He thought of a fix: Botox! 8. Though poor and nearly homeless, Kenny thought, 9. "I must journey to Regina for injections," 10. Which he did, and now his face is hideously beautiful. Requires some thought, but it serves as a great activity and challenge for all. Good Luck! EnglishTeach.
