Explore new poetic forms and devices.
Some of the forms and devices you’ll explore are…
- Concrete Poetry
- Metaphor & Simile
- Prose Poetry
Writing 201: Poetry is a two-week course that lets anyone who dabbles in verse (or wants to start) practice the poet’s craft with a supportive community of like-minded bloggers.
We’ll offer daily doses of inspiration to help you ramp up your writing rhythm, and explore poetic devices and forms — from similes and limericks to enjambment and sonnets — for those who wish to expand their poetic horizons. Poets of all styles, outlooks, and backgrounds are welcome (including those who have none).
I’ve been writing poetry for a long time and the thought of structure always gave me the shivers, but this course has opened my eyes! I feel energized to take up poetry writing more seriously.
– Seamless Writing
As in all Blogging U. courses, you’ll also have access to a private site, The Commons, where you can connect with other participants, share your work, and get support from WordPress.com Editors and Happiness Engineers.
