Kelly McQuain (on cinquain exercise)

All semester I have been hammering in the notion to use image, image, image to convey ideas in my students’ writing projects. Today we used the cinquain exercise in my creative writing class. The adherence to syllabics forced them to prioritize image and to be concise. I am looking forward to using more exercises soon. –Kelly McQuain, Associate Professor of English, Community College of Philadelphia
