I have searched the bookstores for a book that might give me all the formats of poetry I could ever learn and have not found one where I live. I am longing for greater challenge,and I would love to write something of a different style than what Iím used to. I was wondering if someone could give me some ideas of some formats. I have never taken a class (though I would love to) on poetry, so I would most likely need the format explained to me. Any help I might receive would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
