Types of Poetry Project

I am going to challenge myself. There are about 51 types of poetry. My goal is to write at least one poem for each kind. I’m sure that I’ve written a poem before for some of these poetry types, but I am going to start from scratch. On this page, I am going to list the types of poetry that I have already written. Remember, it all starts today, so any other previous writings that I’ve done does not count.

You may click on the letters in bold if you wish to read my attempts at writing that particular type of poetry. I hope you have fun checking it out. If you’re a pet, you may want to give yourself the same challenge, or you can give yourself a bigger one. Let’s see where my writing takes me. wink

    This page appears to get a good ammount of visitors. How do you advertise it? It offers a nice individual twist on things. I guess having something authentic or substantial to talk about is the most important thing.
