A Pen In Each Hand

By Beaver

  1. Picasso was famous for his abstract art, but he learned how to draw realistically first. Try your hand at a rhyming form of poetry like a sonnet, or even a limerick. It’s a good exercise because it forces you to think about the number and pattern of beats in each line.
  2. Pick up a Magnetic Poetry kit or use the online version to play around with word placement and line breaks.
  3. Post a poem at the forums and ask readers to identify the best and worst lines.
