Monster Under the Couch
In this workshop students are asked to imagine how a hungry monster living under their couch might look, sound and act. The first epic encounter with the monster will be written as a narrative poem, with students guided through key aspects of the form and the use of various poetic devices. Through the use of repetition and simile, students will describe their monster and consider the ultimate question, what ARE they doing under there?
