Writers Ink is on a much-needed vacation. This blog post contains generic information about archetypes.

Print this document and use it when crafting poems (or even prose, since an archetype could be a guiding symbol for story and for nonfiction).
Archetypes assist you with crafting your writing, much as we discussed at the Three Unities post, on August. 25.
