Exploring Personal Connections: One Brief Paragraph
What’s the specific subject matter of the work? (What specific idea, experience, topic, etc., does it explore?)
How do you connect to it, personally? (What specific reasons explain why you chose this work to write about? Are you interested in how it uses specific craft elements? Does it resonate with you on a personal level for some specific reason? Explain.)
Exploring Craft: 2-3 Pages
What do you notice about the craft of the work—how the author has constructed the story/poetry? Make observations about elements of situation, plot, characterization, point of view, structure, imagery, etc., and ask yourself how the author is using these craft elements in the work you’re exploring. You don’t need to address every craft element we’ve explored in this course; focus on the ones that seem most interesting to you or most important to the work, and explain why they’re the most interesting/important.
What questions about how story/poetry craft do your observations raise for you? For example, does the story make you wonder about how plot situations can/should be introduced in a story, or about effective plot resolutions? Does the poem make you wonder about how/why to use specific types of rhyme, or what makes for effective imagery?
