request for votes and a form

Sun Mar 19, 2006, 12:15 AM
Welcome to Poetic Forms, a community where people who want to learn about and write with traditional and modern poetic forms can do so together.

It was created by alenia on May 22, 2003.


:pointr:Note from the Moderator:pointl:

I have decided to change the policy on voting for the form of the month as I never seem to have many votes.  The month after a certain form is given, people will still be free to vote.  The winning poem will be displayed two months after it was given and the poems from the previous month will be voted on.  If anyone thinks this policy is a bad idea, let me know your objections, as I am still quite new to this. :)

If you want to do an official write-up on any forms with a specified rhyme scheme, meter, and/or repetition, please note poetic-forms.  Suggestions on forms for others to write up are welcome.

The write-ups should contain a brief history of the form, perhaps an example, and a full description of the rhyme scheme, meter, common themes, etc. You will receive a :heart: next to your name for accepted form write-ups.

We could use some help here.  If someone would like to do a write up for sonnets it would be especially appreciated.

Hi ! Sending a note to join this group,I believe these forms ought to have more recognition in the DA community, and help us more.

you have an amazing gallery.
Is anyone in this forum interested in submitting their work to a blog for artistic responses? Or possibly responding to other people's work with pieces of their own?

Hi everyone!

I'm back, and as I can't get in touch with ~lilymaid7 to restart this club, I started another called ~versebyverse. We will be using much of the same material as this club since I wrote a lot of it. If you'd like to join, just devWatch us. Hope to see a lot of you!

Hey, I know this isn't poetry but I'm a member of the group who has been working on a story for a while and would really appreciate some creative criticism. If anyone gets a chance please check these out and let me know what I can do to make it better.

Hi all! :wave:

Sent a note to join this group, especially as I noticed quite a few people in it who are interested in Eastern poetic forms, which is my main interest (my signature is in haiku form, in case that didn't give me away already). I believe these forms ought to have more recognition in the DA community and deserve thorough treatment.
