9th Lit – Writing Project: Coming of Age Poetry Project

Coming of Age Poem

During this unit we have discussed many examples of Coming of Age narratives.  You will now have an opportunity to create your own work. Your assignment is to write a free verse poem about a Coming of Age moment. To begin, jot down some ideas. Then write your poem. Be sure to: 

  • Consider carefully how you create line breaks in your free verse poem. 
  • Choose precise words (especially verbs) to convey this moment. 
  • Use specific diction and imagery to create an image in the mind of your reader. 
  • Ensure that the theme which you learned in this moment is obvious to the reader.  

Final poem should be 10-15 lines long written in free verse with at least two examples of imagery.
