• #Potential Topic

  • When my aunt gave me the book Where The Sidewalk Ends in 6th grade

  • When i wrote my poem for the cafe thing in 6th grade

  • This summer when I watched Kill Your Darlings which led me to read Howl and introduced poetry to me

  • My “Dear Dumb Diary” book that I was writing in 3 grade

  • #Why It Matters

  • This was the first form of poetry that I read and I thought my aunt was really weird for giving it to me but it ended up being alright.

  • Mrs. Gaurisco was bragging about my poem to another parent and it really boosted my esteem on my writing

  • because it really made my interest in poetry and literature boost

  • it was the first form of “creative” writing that I ever wrote. I wrote it on my own time.

  • I remember when she gave me the book II was in my grandmas living room on front of the whole family and I was actually quite disappointed because I was like “wow, what a lame gift”. Then a couple months later i got extremely bored and decided to pick up the book and actually somewhat enjoyed it.

  • My heart skipped a beat when my name was called to read my own personal poem in front of 20 other 6th graders in the Alumni house. After I sped through reading it, everyone shyly snapped for me. I thought I did alright until after we were all leaving and I heard Mrs. Gaurisco saying how “creative and brilliant” mine was.

  • I snuggled up with my best friend, Alexandra, on a rainy June afternoon and started Kill Your Darlings, solely because the main character was played by my favorite actor Dane Dehaan. I remember Alexandra actually ended up napping while i sat upright and staring wide eyed at the tv. As soon as the credits rolled I pulled my phone out and looked up a piece of writing that was frequently mentioned throughout the film, Howl by Allen Ginsburg, and I read it over and over again until Alexandra woke up.

  • I was stuck at my grandmas house for most of the summer and decided to start typing up a chapter book on her laptop. I have to admit that I stole the title of my novel from a book I had seen around the library. Everyday I would sit on her living room floor and write for about 2 hours. I got to about the 6th chapter before summer was over and I stopped writing it.
