Level one

1. Using ideas from your "Idea File," select ones that can be adapted to the villanelle, sestina and pantoum. (Or conceive new ideas.) Then go through the step-by-step method as outlined for each type of poem. For the sestina and pantoum, use meter, if you like, or cast them in a freestyle a la Diane Wakoski's sestina or Joyce Carol Oates's pantoum.

2. In your journal, note difficulty with any step involved during the composition of a villanelle, sestina and pantoum.
