AIN'T NOBODY GONNA REWRITE MY POEM!
If I ask for input, however, they can write their OWN poem, perhaps closely derived from mine. Personally, I don't feel I could ever call that poem mine. At best, it's a collaboration. And, yea, that is just as true if all I do is work a good suggestion into my own version of the poem. The minute I put it up for critique, the poem became a group effort, and any subsequent change costs me sole ownership. At the very best, I've become the leader of a team, making decisions on direction.
That is NOT a bad thing. It's one cost for learning, and a pretty small cost at that. You didn't think learning was going to be free, did you?
