Hi Everyone!
« on: January 30, 2016, 01:59:04 PM »
My name is Emma and I am a sophomore in college from Houston, TX. This semester, I am taking a creative writing course that focuses on poetry, and I'm actually kind of nervous to take it. I haven't taken a creative writing class before, and I (sadly) don't do a lot of creative writing in my pastime. But I am really excited to start writing for this class, and I really hope this site will help me with writing and analyzing poetry.

Question: What do the options 1 and 2 mean?
