Free Writing at St. Benedict

Grade 9 students Alex Michel, Sabrina Bagnarol, Samuel Martin and Cyrice Pelletier and English teacher Darcy Closs activate their imagination during this creative writing exercise.

April 23, 2012 - St. Benedict grade 9 students, including their English teacher Mr. Closs celebrate April as Poetry month by work on a ‘free writing’ exercise. Free-writing involves self-expression by keeping your pen moving continuously for a short period of time without concern for spelling, grammar or neatness. This technique helped students to collect ideas on paper which later lead to more formal pieces of poetry writing. Both students and teacher were inspired by a spoken-word workshops given by visiting Toronto-based poet Tanya Neumeyer.
