In an NCTE workshop that Sylvia Vardell and Janet Wong attended, Julia E. Torres led a "waterfall" exercise where each person entered a single word into the Zoom chat — and everyone pressed "enter" at the same time, creating a waterfall of words. Sylvia took that idea and modified it to create a "chat poem" exercise. She gave the poets in Anthologies 301 five seconds to answer the prompt "Winter Is . . . " and this is the poem that flowed out!
