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.

Note from the Moderator
I have decided to change the policy on voting for the form of the month as I never seem to have many votes. The month after a certain form is given, people will still be free to vote. The winning poem will be displayed two months after it was given and the poems from the previous month will be voted on. If anyone thinks this policy is a bad idea, let me know your objections, as I am still quite new to this.
Cinquains to Vote on
Form of the Month
The form of the month for March is the clerihew.
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.
We could use some help here. If someone would like to do a write up for sonnets it would be especially appreciated.
To join this community, please send a NOTE (as opposed to writing a devious comment) with the subject "Joining".
