Wednesday, Nov. 18, Colette Tennant’s Creative Writing class put on a chapel that was centered around the Thanksgiving holiday, and more specifically the talents that God has blessed people with. A video recorded by the class was shown interspersed with live readings of poetry and different songs. The opportunity to write a poem was extended to the rest of campus. An American Sentence is a seventeen syllable poem that is only, like the name suggests, one sentence. Below enjoy some of the poems read during the chapel, some poems written in the Creative Writing class and a few American Sentences.
Here is a post written by student, Bronte Brooke, reviewing the Creative Writing class’s chapel.
Thank you, God, for all of my sweet students – and for the ornery ones too. (Colette Tennant)
