Announcements
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 poetic@creative-flow.net 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

Feedback Needed!!!!!
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

Write-Ups
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.

Form of the Month
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 poetic@creative-flow.net.  Sorry about the delay in everything.  I hope we have some more staff members by november.

(Somewhere along the line the process of adding member links to the journal faulted. If you are a member and your name isn't on here send a note so we can add you. Thanks. corruptedangel)
