Create a symbol and write a short essay on what the symbol means. This should be a piece of short fiction using the symbol as the central focus in the essay or a poem either using the symbol as a focus or describing the symbol’s meaning. Be sure you have:

Created a symbol that is appropriate for what it is symbolizing
Expanded the idea of the symbol so that you show many facets of it ( A mockingbird in the novel To Kill a Mockingbird, was used because it was helpless and vulnerable and only brought joy and good feelings to people – a symbol of the situation of African American man, Tom Robinson living in a Southern town during the 1930’s and 40’s.)
Have a beginning, a middle and an end of in your short fiction – include exposition, rising action, climax, falling action and resolution.

    Why do you think you're restricted to writing a poem? The directions say "short fiction or poem." That means you can tell a short story OR write a poem.

    This is an excellent diagram to let you know what is included in each part of a plot.

    What do you think should be included in the exposition?

    You'd be wise to work with this diagram and dive in. The more time you waste asking questions here, the less time you have to write your story.
