Day 7

You are almost done! Today your job is to edit your poem. This is the time to look for spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors. Remember in poetry, you have some freedom with how you use punctuation. Your reader will pause at the end of line breaks even if there is no punctuation, so be aware of this. It is often helpful when editing to start from the end and read each line separately looking for misspelled words. Be careful that you use homophones like their and there, you're and your, to and too correctly.

Review the scoring rubric and evaluate your own poem before submitting it to the discussion box

**Most writers ask at least one other person to read their work and help them edit.
