    When strings became keys

    I remember my first guitar I remember the feeling of sliding my fingers up and down the fretboard which was homez to six shiny steel strings. I remember the sharpness of those strings, the scratches on my fingers...

      I am impressed by your post, “I remember”, because it is shocking how from one day to another students stopped going to school for a year. It’s shocking how at first it seemed fun doing work from home until people realized it wasn’t.

      One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me is “I remember hearing the news that in-person school was canceled until further notice”. I think that this is interesting because students did not expect not to go to school in person.

      Thank you for your writing. I am looking forward to seeing what you write next because a of students can relate to this.

    Here are some things about me

    I am from eyeglasses, old cassette tapes and Febreeze. I am from the red monkey bars that were once impossible to reach.  I am from tall buildings that resemble stars when looking down from above. I’m from the sweet, warm smell of...

  • Dear Sara,
    I really enjoyed reading about your feelings during quarantine. I found this poem to be really relatable. A line that stood out to me was “I remember having no motivation to do school work.” This stood out to me because during quarantine I started to fail some of my classes for the same reason, but overall your poem was really good and…Read More

  • Dear Mbathio:

    I am Amazed by your poem, “Along Manhattan Avenue,” because I really like how you’ve incorporated the techniques that you saw from your mentor poem and made it your own. I also like how genuine your poem is.

    One line that stands out for me is, “shining bright through the walls of despair”. I think this line is impactful…Read More

When strings became keys

I remember

Here are some things about me

From Fall To Winter


Knorr uses imagery and personification in the first two lines.


This line gives me a feeling of tranquility.

I like how detailed Knorr's writing is because as I read I can visualize everything that is happening.

Fonny was falsely accused and put in jail for a crime he didn't commit.

I agree

The fact that Tish was willing to sell herself to set Fonny free just shows how much she truly loves him and that she would do anything for him, But if she's pregnant what about the baby?

She is working while pregnant.

Fonny thinks that the lawyer isn't trying hard enough since Fonny is still in jail for a crime he didn't commit.

I agree

I agree

I agree

I'm really glad to see Fonny getting the love and support he needs from his family.

It seems that Tish is dependent on Fonny. She wouldn't be able to handle being without him if he goes to jail.

I'm proud of them and I'm glad they got approval from Joseph (Tish's father).

Agreed. It makes no sense how he said that so quickly and abruptly.

I like how Fonny knows what he wants and even though he may be nervous he is still answering Joseph's questions with absolute certainty.

I agree

Fonny has never loved any other girl the way he loves Tish.

I agree



(Question) Did Mrs. Hunt attempt to kill one of her own children?

Ernestine is threatening Adrienne.
