Level One

1. Take out the three drafts of poems from your "Work in Progress" file that you did in the last notebook exercise on voice. Revise them according to the four building blocks discussed in this chapter.

2. Select three ideas from your "Idea File" —one suited to short-line lengths (drama), one to medium-line lengths (clarity), and one to long-line lengths (emotional release). Now compose first drafts, heeding all that you have learned thus far about voice and line.
