As part of an effort to incentivize myself to write more poetry and experiment more with different types of poetic forms, I have decided to start a poetry challenge in the spirit of all those Internet challenges that have become so
notorious popular within the past year and welcome anyone and everyone to join along with me! Also, don’t feel pressured to do the forms in order or to do one everyday – that’s just for those who want a more… challenging challenge. I’ve included links for more info on these different forms.
- Ottava Rima
- Terza Rima
- Rhymed Stanza
- Ars Poetica
Happy writing, everyone! Let me know if you find this in any way inspiring! c: For those of you who want to learn more about poetic forms, I highly recommend the The Making of a Poem: A Norton Anthology of Poetic Forms, and also Mary Oliver’s A Poetry Handbook as a general very helpful book of valuable poetry advice.
