Well, I want you all to know that I like to take something and devote a week to it. Hence, the art week a few weeks ago and now the poetry week I will be starting tomorrow.
Now, while art week was merely a chance to show my passion for art and the many aspects of art that I have explored (and show of some of my amazing artistic talent. Ahem!), I am hoping that poetry week will be about a bit more. Yes, I will explore several different types of poetry and show off a bit of my own work, but I also would like you guys to join in. As we venture into poetry week, PLEASE write with me and SHARE your work! Show us your new stuff, old stuff, or stuff you’re still working on. Either copy and paste it into a comment, or post it on your own blog (if you post it on your own blog, please copy and paste a link in the comments so that people may come and take a look and/or link your blog back to mine so others can follow along.)
Each day, I will feature a different type of writing, such as (and in no particular order)…
Haikus and Tankas
Enjambment and Endstop Poems
On each day, I will give you an example of the kind of poetry we are covering from my own work or from a famous piece (or both.) Each day, I will also encourage you to share your work in that style (or really any style. The point is just to write some poetry, but tell us what kind of poetry you are writing or enjoy the most).
Hopefully, it will be a poetry week to remember!!! I’m looking forward to it!
IT ALL STARTS TOMORROW!
