News in Poetry Write a poem that begins a negative and ends with a positive - 31p31d
Posted by Ozymandias on Thursday, October 23, 2014 (21:27:12)

Poets can be a sensitive lot. In a way, that’s what poets are known for. Unfortunately, it can be a poet’s undoing. Writer’s block, in most cases, is simply a lack of confidence. A person gets so wrapped up in negative self talk, that no matter what they put on the page, it never seems good enough.Link!

News in Poetry Write a poem that uses at least two different forms of repetition - 31p31d
Posted by Ozymandias on Thursday, October 23, 2014 (08:39:57)

One of the central concepts of poetry is repetition. As poets we repeat sounds, syllables, words, syntax, meters, lines and stanzas. The use of repetition is one of the qualities of poetry that separates it from prose. In prose, repetition is rare and usually done to either increase clarity or to make a single point.Link!

News in Poetry Write a poem that discusses a real moment in your life without discussing its la
Posted by Ozymandias on Thursday, October 23, 2014 (06:50:08)

The current era of poetry is commonly referred to as the Postmodern Era. Postmodern thought is a complex series of philosophical and literary responses to the post World War II changes in world view and the acceleration of society. It isn’t the sort of thing you can explain in a blog post. I’ve taken entire classes on postmodern thought and I still can’t really explain it. The important thing to remember though, is that postmodernism is greatly concerned with challenging the traditional conventions of thought and communication.Link!
