Welcome goji, poetry-of-hate


:pointr:Announcements and Information
Poetic Forms is under new administration: pamelaski Feel free to approach me with concerns, comments, and suggestions. Note me here or send me an email at

Suggestions for contests or activities? Let me know! This is NOT my group, it is YOURS. Without you, it is nothing.

:pointr:Message Board Forum…;
This is a great place to foster our community spirit, as well as workshop pieces of poetry. Thank you jl for bringing this to my attention, and for suggesting we use it for workshopping pieces!


HeIsCome has suggested that we have a "makeover" of the group, to herald our new rebirth with new leadership. So, the current contest is going to be for a new DevID. Please send your submissions in via NOTE, and I will list them. Then, the members of Poetic Forms will vote on which ID we wish to use. PLEASE do not send in any votes until you are asked for them! We want to make sure everyone has a fair chance for their offering to be looked at.


If you want to do an 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.
