We had to write a piece of prose text at university the other day; we were being trained on how best to get our students to write creativity and to distinguish ‘story’ and ‘narrative’. It was very eye-opening.
We were given the ‘story’ of Midas; and asked to turn the ‘story’ into a narrative. I wrote my narrative but was truly not happy with how it came out. So I decided to turn that narrrative into a poem.
