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.
To join this community, please send a NOTE (as opposed to writing a devious comment) with the subject "Joining" saying that you want to join and linking any formed poems you may have written already.
No prior experience is needed to join, all that is needed is your interest. We have not denied anyone who asked to join, and we appreciate everyone who joins.
Welcome to thefaded!
I am having family trouble and prevail is having some other problems in real life, so I'm not sure how well this group will be running. Please become a staff member if you can and are ready for the commitment. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or send a note to alenia if you want to help. I'd recoment e-mail as I'm not sure how much I'll check my DA account. Sorry about this, thanks for your understanding. alenia
Get excited! Our first contest will be released in little time! Poetic-forms is alive! corruptedangel
Also, we now have a message board! daniela.creative-flow.net/poet… Please only join once you are a member of this community. Have fun!
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
If you want to do the official write-up on any forms with a specified rhyme scheme, meter, and/or repetition, please note poetic-forms. If you just have information on the forms but don't want to write it up, send a note as well and we will pass the information on to whoever would like to do the write-up. The write ups will contain a brief history of the form, perhaps an example, and a full description of the rhyme scheme, meter, common themes, etc. All write ups shall be channeled through this page (i.e. the text should be sent in a note here) and from here it will be submitted as a deviation.

Sorry, but August has no form of the month due to alenia and the rest of the staff being extremely busy with real life. If you want to help out by joining the staff, please note alenia or send an e-mail to email@example.com. Sorry about the delay in everything. I hope we have some more staff members by november.
