Seasons is a poem that I thought of one morning before class. I was thinking of the upcoming vacation, and realized how last year we were snowed in so we could not fly up. I thought about how warm it was in Florida and how cold it was at home and then I thought about seasons. At first, I did not know which aspect of seasons I should write about. Then, when we were assigned the extended metaphor poem, I know that I could write about the different seasons.
Emily Marro, 25, Orondo, Washington. My task was to visit one of the concerts of my favorite singer or band and not only describe my emotions but also write about the terms that we have learned during the last month, and they were used by the singer. Except for analyzing the lyrics and how it influenced my perception of the music, I also asked the writer to interview several visitors and see how the perception differs depending on age, sex, and probably, nationality (especially by the non-native speakers of English). Thank you, my hero, for such a scrupulous work you've done for me to receive a good grade.

Though in my intro to poetry writing class I typically do not focus on the turn until the second half of the semester there is so much to cover prior to this: creative process, artistic recklessness, the poetic leap, the many means to create surprise, etc , I recently have taken to providing students with an exercise focused on the turn in the first day of class. After performing the rituals of the beginning of the semester taking roll, handing out and discussing the syllabus, etc , I introduce my students to the metaphor-to-meaning structure. We then examine a handful of metaphor-to-meaning poems in which the turn reveals that the metaphor was meant to stand for or say something about poetry, or the poem, or that poet. We take some time, explore and appreciate these poems, and then I give my students their assignment: write a poem like these—write a poem that opens with a metaphor and closes by revealing that the metaphor somehow relates to poetry, poems, or the figure of the poet.
Masterpiece Generator refers to a set of text generator tools created by Aardgo. The tools are designed to be cool and entertain, but also help aspiring writers create a range of different media, including plots, lyrics for songs, poems, letters and names. Some generated content parodies existing styles and artists, whilst others are based on original structures. Our first generator, Song Lyrics Generator was launched in as a student magazine project. After it proved popular, we expanded to include plots, and the project grew from there.
