Poetic Forms

I have compiled all of the lessons and knowledge about poetic form that I’ve picked up over the years. This information is a collection of data from journals, post-it notes, e-files, and bookmarked websites. I have added it to my blog to get it all in 1 location and because it’s easily accessible here. I do hope that some of you will benefit from this section as well.

I encourage you to comment. If something is missing and could be added, please comment on this page. If you have a poetic example on your blog of a certain form, leave a link to it in the comments of that particular form’s page. If I got something wrong, by all means, leave a comment. If you found a certain page helpful and just want to say so, leave a comment. I look forward to hearing what you think.

Initially, as I create new pages here on my blog, the glossary will be fairly thin. I will add to it regularly and get it up to par as quickly as possible. If you need immediate help with a form that is missing, leave a comment; I’ll move it up the priority list.
