Welcome to Poetic Forms, a community where people who want to learn about and write with traditional and modern poetic forms can do so together.
It was created by alenia on May 22, 2003.
Form of the Month
There will be no Form of the Month, this January, as the month is nearly over and I have no winner from the last contest.
If anyone would be so kind as to vote or cast his or her vote again, whatever the case may be, on last January's bref double submissions it would be very helpful.

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. Suggestions on forms for others to write up are welcome.
The write-ups should contain a brief history of the form, perhaps an example, and a full description of the rhyme scheme, meter, common themes, etc. You will receive a next to your name for accepted form write-ups.
I added anyone who had requested membership since last July to our member list. If you made your request before and we neglected to add you, please kindly send a note.
To join this community, please send a NOTE (as opposed to writing a devious comment) with the subject "Joining".
I have no idea if anyone wants to keep their current positions, but if anyone wants to help with anything, please feel free to volunteer.
