Young, Linda
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v51 n1 p50-55 Sep 2007
The Poetry Generating Loop is a new kind of generative writing circle that offers concrete, creative ways to get students involved in and excited about poetry. By writing poems in groups, students are able to learn poetic terms and experiment with techniques through their writing--a process that can shed new light on the world of poetry.
