To Friday’s class, in addition to the “Poetry Workbook” binder, bring a full page of typed original writing–either poetry or prose.  Use the assigned template (TBA) for this writing.

The last line(s) of this writing should be either the exact Heaney quote above the door to our classroom, or some relative of this quotation.

The main challenge of this exercise is to develop the piece in order to end naturally with the prescribed statement.
