Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's insight:
I used poetry with students to help them play with and find words. Poetry writing is a way to discover and express who we are through our voice.

The points at the end of the article are insightful. It reads more like a know your audience list, as opposed to a do and don't do list.

How Mindfulness Can Help Your Writing

Regardless, the afternoons were far more focused.
