Imagist poetry criteria list

Imagist Poetry Criteria List

  • Direct treatment of the “thing”

  • Use no word that does not contribute to presentation (all words reveal something)

  • Compose in sequence of the musical phrase, not a metronome

  • The rhythm should flow from one line to the next

  • Give feelings of liberation or sudden growth

  • Use concrete images, no abstractions

  • Avoid writing philosophic poetry

  • Present the image, don’t describe

  • Use surprising rhyme

  • Find the exact word that will achieve your goal

      • Sharing Responses


Pacing prompt

Pacing Prompt

  • Have a character experienceor witness a crime.

    • Choose a small time crime (no violence); it could be as simple as someone accidentally short-changing a customer.

      • But perhaps a character sees this, overreacts, and vows to avenge the cheated customer by doing something drastic.

    • How will the character react? Does the character meet the criminal at all? Does she follow the criminal? Does the victim ever play a role? Ask lots of questions.

    • Write a 1 page, front & back story that includes the crime and the main characters reaction, you must have 1 section that is deliberately fast paced (the crime) and 1 section that is deliberately slowed down (the scene before or after the crime).
