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

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).
