Monday Poetry Stretch - Modified Cento

I'm late in posting, but today was the first day of classes and I am 6 days away and counting from our accreditation review. I'll also admit to spending a fair amount of time reading about the book awards announced today.

I was inspired by the titles of current and past winners and thought that together, they might make an interesting poem. So, let's try a modified cento this week. Using titles from your favorite books (or award winners, classics, etc.), create a poem. I'm calling this a modified cento because I don't want to restrict you simply to the titles. Connect them together in any way that makes sense. When you're finished, don't forget to give us a "key" to the books you used.

So, what kind of poem will you write? Leave me a comment about your piece and I will post the results here later this week.

  2. I'm in, too. Love this form!
