Form of the Month
May is Sonnet Month for our community, so here's a little information about sonnets for those who don't know much about them.

A sonnet is a fourteen lined poem which is usually written in iambic pentameter.  The shakespearian form has a rhyme scheme ABAB-CDCD-EFEF-GG.  The petrarchan sonnet has a rhyme scheme ABBAABBA-CDECDE.  The shakespearian structure usually has a turn in the last two lines as a kind of finalizing and the petrarchan structure has a turn between the octave and the sextet showing a change in tone.  Other sonnets have other rhyme schemes which vary, but the shakespearian and petrarchan are the most common.

Expect Pantoum Month, Comming up in June

I think the writing topics will be 2 weeks.  If you have any objections or comments on this, please note me.
***
The first period of time's writing topic (subject to change once the community becomes more organized) will be the most commonly known poetic form, a sonnet.

A sonnet is a fourteen lined poem which is usually written in iambic pentameter.  The shakespearian form has a rhyme scheme ABAB-CDCD-EFEF-GG.  The petrarchan sonnet has a rhyme scheme ABABABAB-CDECDE.  The shakespearian structure usually has a turn in the last two lines as a kind of finalizing and the petrarchan structure has a turn between the octave and the sextet showing a change in tone.

Sonnets may have many other variant rhyme schemes such as ABBA-CDDC-EFEFEF or something like that.  However, the sonnets you write this month must have some rhyme scheme and represent either four quatrains and a couplet, an octave and a sextet, or two quatrains and a sextet.  The quatrains must follow the same pattern whether it be ABBA or ABAB.  The poems are due at some point to be determined, possibly the end of June or possibly in two weeks, at which point it will be added to a devpack of all the poems.

Welcome to Poetic Forms, a community where people who want to learn about and write with traditional poetic forms can do so together.  It was created by alenia on May 22, 2003.

The first month's writing topic (subject to change once the community becomes more organized) will be the most commonly known poetic form, a sonnet.

Members, I think we should agree on how long a writing topic lasts for

A sonnet is a fourteen lined poem which is usually written in iambic pentameter.  The shakespearian form has a rhyme scheme ABAB-CDCD-EFEF-GG.  The petrarchan sonnet has a rhyme scheme ABABABAB-CDECDE.  The shakespearian structure usually has a turn in the last two lines as a kind of finalizing and the petrarchan structure has a turn between the octave and the sextet showing a change in tone.

Sonnets may have many other variant rhyme schemes such as ABBA-CDDC-EFEFEF or something like that.  However, the sonnets you write this month must have some rhyme scheme and represent either four quatrains and a couplet, an octave and a sextet, or two quatrains and a sextet.  The quatrains must follow the same pattern whether it be ABBA or ABAB.  The poems are due at the end of June, at which point it will be added to a devpack of all the poems.

If you join this community, you do not need to participate in all the monthy poems to write, but it would be very nice of you to do so.

To join this community, please note this page saying that you want to join and linking any formed poems you may have written already.

Also, if you want to make a devid or a icon for poetic-forms, that would be very nice.

Thank you!***

Welcome to Poetic Forms, a community where people who want to learn about and write with traditional poetic forms can do so together.  It was created by alenia on May 22, 2003.

The first month's writing topic (subject to change once the community becomes more organized) will be the most commonly known poetic form, a sonnet.

A sonnet is a fourteen lined poem which is usually written in iambic pentameter.  The shakespearian form has a rhyme scheme ABAB-CDCD-EFEF-GG.  The petrarchan sonnet has a rhyme scheme ABABABAB-CDECDE.  The shakespearian structure usually has a turn in the last two lines as a kind of finalizing and the petrarchan structure has a turn between the octave and the sextet showing a change in tone.

Sonnets may have many other variant rhyme schemes such as ABBA-CDDC-EFEFEF or something like that.  However, the sonnets you write this month must have some rhyme scheme and represent either four quatrains and a couplet, an octave and a sextet, or two quatrains and a sextet.  The quatrains must follow the same pattern whether it be ABBA or ABAB.  The poems are due at the end of June, at which point it will be added to a devpack of all the poems.

If you join this community, you do not need to participate in all the monthy poems to write, but it would be very nice of you to do so.

To join this community, please note this page saying that you want to join and linking any formed poems you may have written already.

Also, if you want to make a devid or a icon for poetic-forms, that would be very nice.

Thank you!***
