Message from Writer

My name is Ellen, and I’m just a high school junior, trying to survive “the best years of my life.” I take on too much for my own good, but I’m dedicated to managing all of it, especially in my clubs. In my “free time,” I like to wander infrequently traveled paths (like good ol’ Robert Frost), and, of course, write. I also enjoy the occasional novel and strumming the strings of my guitar. In the future, I plan to attend a local college for degrees in Secondary Education with a specialization in English and Creative Writing. I hope to teach high school English and write novels (yes, at the same time) upon graduation from college.

"Elizabop, isn't this a great find?" 
"Fruit Cake," she pauses, rolling her eyes. "Go carry in more boxes, and stop acting like we found this house at the thrift shop."
"Honey, you know I hate it when you call me fruit cake, but I'll go."
"I think you're lucky I said yes, and you should love...

Echoes

PROMPT: Pantoum

I stand by the ocean, and I shout, but no one listens.
The echoes of my own voice are the only reply.
I turn from the water just to create some distance,
and let the crashing of the waves be my goodbye.

The echoes of my own voice are the only reply.
I've grown tired of waiting for anything new,
and I let the crashing of the waves be my goodbye.
It was peaceful until I realized why the ocean...

PROMPT: Illumination

You really pack a lot into such a short piece! You use beautiful language and great comparisons that really create a vivid character. However, the title seems a bit unfitting. How could you modify or expand the character or the...

The Prisoner

PROMPT: Open Prompt

First of all, this poem is excellently writing, so I commend you on that. It flows beautifully and conveys such a powerful meaning. However, that meaning is a little hard to grasp at first. Like I mentioned, I had to...

The Color of Words

PROMPT: Paint Swatch

First off, your piece is beautifully worded, and the comparisons really stick in my mind. Also, the message is a really important message that was incorporated very well. However, a color isn't described, so it doesn't really follow the prompt....
