|This method asks participants to reflect upon a specific topic, issue, experience, or learning by distilling reactions into a short poetic form. This distillation process can be way to imaginatively, intuitively, and playfully respond in a way that disrupts habituated language and thought patterns. This method can create space for people who naturally process or express information in non-linear ways and challenges those who are used to traditional linear forms to stretch their capacities. Limiting the number of words and creating structure can stimulate creativity.
