Today you’re stealing from screenwriters.
Before you write the poem use the three-act structure to create the outline.
If you want to add another step, think of the characters that will be in your poem-screenplay and write brief back stories for each of them.
To create the outline, use only 1-3 sentences for each item.
Act One (Set Up)
Turning Point (PLOT TWIST!!):
Act Two (Confrontation/Development)
Act Three (Resolution)
