20/30: Paul Tran

It's persona poem day! We are reading "Like Judith Slaying Holofernes" an absolute banger of a poem. https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poetrymagazine/poems/148383/like-judith-slaying-holofernes


Something that takes this piece to the next level is how seamlessly Paul weaves their own life into the persona's story. So pick yourself a myth or legend to assume, but don't be afraid to give brief glimpses of your own narrative within the poem. This makes the voice feel authentic and powerful.
