6. In your Author's note, provide the poem title ( even if the title of your poem is the same as Ai's ) as well as a link to the poem ( not website ) by Ai that inspired yours. Without this, we have no way of determining if you were truly inspired by Ai, or simply swapped fresh words into her existing poetry and form, which could be considered plagiarism.

Do not simply paraphrase another writer's poem in your own words or rewrite what they wrote with variations in the details. That is not learning anything about the poet, yourself as a poet, or writing poetry. That is not contributing fresh poetry to the world. That is just slapping words together to pass off as your own knowing it damn well will read like the poet you are emulating because it is that poet's words, ideas, and styling you are presenting as yours.
