Greetings fellow poets!

This is just a brief note at this time, to let everyone know that poetic-forms has had a change in leadership. The new Admin is pamelaski

If any of the other admins out there want to continue to take part and assist in this group, please send me a note. I have been in contact with alenia and have been given permission to lead the group.

Short note! I'll have another journal entry up by tomorrow, and we'll be up and running again. Contest ideas? Form of the month? Any ideas? Write me.

Also, I'm looking for a list of members and can't seem to find it. Hmm...

Pamela :D
ok, I know that I said that I'd have something up for January, and the I flew off into the distance.  I'm not really as motivated to continue the group right now since leaving, and I haven't been writing in forever either.  I'm just starting to take a poetry course now, so I may have something in the future, but for now I think we may all go on a brief haitus unless any of the staff want to take over.  If anyone wants to contact me, you can e-mail me at piningforfjords@yahoo.com since I have more or less left DA for now.  Thanks for understanding.

alenia
Hey, it's alenia, I'm back now more or less.  However, I am not sure exactly how to really integrate myself back into the group so I think I will spend time arranging January and leave December the way it is in terms of Journal layout, contests and so on.  I personally prefer the idea of a form of the month not linked with a specific subject, (especially if the subject is more exclusive rather than inclusive), but send us a note with your oppinion on that! Perhaps there will be several different projects you can write about on different levels.  I'll also be checking out many of the new members in the next few weeks depending on how much time I have.  I know a few of you may not like the way I eventually reorganize the group because in the process of trying accomidate members and make activites, the group sort of strayed from its original purpose.  if anyone has any oppinions, PLEASE send a note.  I will be very receptive as much as I am there.

I am going to clean up this journal abit. It will basically be divided into 5 sections: Annoucements, Activity of the Month, Welcome to Newbies, Poems of the Month and Useful Resources.

There will no longer be the members' list and the write-up requirements as I feel it's so draggy to scroll all the way down.. hee hee..

Also, starting December, all the way till whenever alenia comes back (in case you are wondering, alenia founded this community), I will post two kind of themes/topics etc..

I feel it would be better, cos' then, you people won't be limited to just one choice.. very restrictive..

And as we sit back in good cheer, with Christmas just around the corner, let's wait for December to come, and we'll see what I can come up with for you people to write about..

regards
chiroptera
on behalf of poetic-forms
21st is just round the corner, and your links are still not in.. except for one from darkcrescendo.. please check that one out at www.deviantart.com/deviation/3… It's a triple quatrain..

I am hereby extending the dateline to the end of November, on assumption that you guys are tied up at work on at school..

On a lighter note, I will put up the limmerick has form of December, you don't have to prepare anything yet, i'll release the subject of desire once we're done with the quatrain..


The object you are to describe, in the form of 1 - 2 paragraphs of the quatrain is the mirror..

Do not ask why the mirror is chosen, just see what you can write about, with the subject mirror in mind.. And you can choose to interpret the mirror as you wish.. (i'm not saying how)..

Submit as your usual deviation, but note us the link with "Mirror" in the subject field. I would like to have a due date, and i think 20 days from now should be fitting..  

So on the 21st Nov 2003, I will compile all your links, and put them up as a deviation, or on the journal. Members are highly encouraged to view works of the other members.

corruptedangel may be coming up with a contest soon, with regards to quatrain, so stick with us for the month of Nov yeah ??

Welcome welcome welcome !!!

It is boring to always see the same ol' journal entry, and so I am gonna spice things up a little bit here.. By the way, "I" am chiroptera.. And nopez, this is not an attempt to seek more pageviews..

I think all you people watching us must be wondering where the hell we went.. Truth be told, this community died again.. And it might do so another time in the future... Ermm, I'm not sure where the other admins went so I'm just doing this of my own accord.. other admins, if you wanna change this back to the ol' journal entry, you got the password, feel free..

Announcements
Always the same ol' annoucements.. not to worry.. this new journal entry will just shake things up a li'll..

I want each and everyone of you to choose between the following poetry forms and vote by leaving a comment on this journal, the poetic backbone you wish to write for the month of November..

The Limerick
The Quatrain

Oh.. and the best part of it, is that there is no write-up (i think) for the above two forms.. Go do your own research and tell me which one you want.. When the time comes, I will set a theme to whichever form was chosen.. That is IF I do get responses, and know that the people of the community is still alive..

I am not too sure about this message board now, but if you would like to check it out, here's the daniela.creative-flow.net/poet…

Intercession: From here on, everything's just copy-and-paste.. I have no comments on the following stuff.. :p

Form of the Month
October is the Ghazal month!
A Ghazal is a string of 5-15 couplets, with each couplet being able to stand alone as a complete thought and/or poem. At the end of the second line of every couplet is a 1-3 word long refrain. A rhyming scheme would look like that: AA, BA, CA, DA, and so on. Please see the write-up for more information.

poetic-forms has been going through major reconstruction.  We now have a bigger staff (which you can join if you want by sending a note to alenia ) and we have been working hard on finding new interactive things to bring the community together in the future.  Also, DAv.3 has forced some other changes on us.  I want you all to know that we are now alive and well once again!  However, the devpacks are down due to the temporary lack of collections on DA v.3.  Once they're up, all will be well.


Also, we have a message board! daniela.creative-flow.net/poet… Please join once you are a member of this community.  Once it is larger and more active, we will have contests and group projects there, and every member will be able to participate more in the workings of the group. Have fun!

Feedback Needed!!!!!
I am considering an idea right now that may bring the community closer together here. A renga is a form of haiku using many different writers in it. Each writer adds a verse (one haiku) or two into the renga until eventually there are 100 verses. I would like to recieve notes (send notes with subject renga to corruptedangel ) from anybody interested and more precise instructions will be given once a reasonable number of applicants has been recieved. Hopefully we will have a wonderful communtiy renga in the end! Thankyou! corruptedangel

Form of the Month
Sorry, but the august form of the month is a bit late because I'm away and the club is running a bit slow

July is Villanelle and Triolet Month!
This month features two forms because as someone alerted me villanelles are pretty long poems and may be a daunting task to undertake, unlike pantoums which could be many possible lengths.  For that reason, I decided to feature both villanelles and triolets.

A villanelle is a 19 lined poem made up of 5 tercets and a quatrain.  The tercets rhyme aba and the quatrain rhymes abaa, where the a's and the b's are the same throughout.  Two lines, the first lines and third lines of the first stanza, switch off in the job of the last lines of the stanza and in the quatrain form a couplet at the end.  That's the best I could do for a brief description; please see the write-up for more information.

Member-Composed Villanelles
Here are some of the pantoums our members have written:
But on this Edge by elenehn
Dylanelle by tessuraea
Liquid Fantasy by hojucult
A Kiss is Nothing by nepasavaler
The Pendulum by darkcrescendo
Seeing Differently by alenia

See the devpack for more!
