(Biography Poem)

Writing a Bio Poem is a fun way to tell about yourself and what you are really like. Follow the form below. However, your Bio Poem can be whatever length you want it to be. It does not have to be thirteen lines long, and you do not have to include exactly three ideas in any of the lines. The form is a guideline to help you get started. Make sure that you do use words that are descriptive, colorful, and lively. It should be YOUR creative expression about YOU. Your poem will make a nice addition to your e-folio.
