Portia Nelson and her "Autobiography in Five Short Chapters" was the inspiration for these poems written by our Creative Writing students.
Portia Nelson writes, "Making mistakes is natural for us humans. It is important for all of us to understand the process of learning. I’m not saying that we have to make mistakes all the time; the idea is to analyze it, learn with it and not repeat it, in order to make new ones. That is what this poem is all about."
