• Coleman I really like this essay. It is a very good example of how to analyze a poem. My favorite parts of the essay are when you go back and forth between lines in the poem and relating them back to the author’s real life problems or situations that you think the poem is highlighting. I also like your good use of transitions and I feel good…[Read more]

  • Malcolm commented on the post, A Rec 3 months, 2 weeks ago

    Dear Keeba:
    I am really happy with your poem, “The Rec,” because it made me feel whole. The rec is a place a lot of people need to experience and visit not literally but there should be recs everywhere. A place where everyone can just have fun and be themselves regardless of their situations can be really helpful for a lot of people.

    Dear Charissa:
    I am in agreement with your bio and feel that I can relate because I also go to harvest and have picked up on some of the things that you have. Being that I’ve been here for a little longer I’ve had more time to get adjusted but your doing fine and you’ll be good.

    • Dear Malcolm :
      I am Impressed by your post, “Photography and Fashion,” because of how similar your path is to mine. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “I have taken a large interest in fashion design and photography. I feel in a way it goes together” think this is an important statement because it is very true
      Another sentence that I cool was: “I actually like english class when it is made interesting and fun to learn about. I’m not too into poetry but I can deal with it if that makes any sense..” This stood out for me because it rings true to me in a important.
      Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. My life is very similar to yours because it isn’t too crazy outside of school.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because we are very similar but you have a very unique and interesting way of sharing yourself.

  • I like this poem coleman but I feel you could elaborate or make it longer. It doesn’t seem to me as if this is too personal to you or like your really into what your saying. I like the part about the Barclays center when you referred to it as a “everlasting star”. I would like to know … are you from Brooklyn? If so the use of the barclays in…[Read more]
