Form (Core course, Lesson #10)


Sonnets, villanelles, haiku, sestinas, abecedarians, lipograms, cinquains etc., etc. Form can be an intimidating and frustrating thing, and yet to write in form is a sign of the ‘serious poet’. No wonder many of us go in fear of form, or find ourselves hopelessly hung up on it. This class takes the pressure off and provides practical advice for using forms.

  • Writing exercises: two exercises getting to grips with form.
