I want to learn new types of poetry.
All I know is free verse. I would like to expand my talent onto new forms of poetry. Thanks

Why don't you join the workshop?

and I realize it takes awhile to find your way around this place--but here--try going to this sometimes forgotten corner of PiP:

Go for it, lady!

Your local library has tons of books on styles of poetry.  A fun one to try that is relatively easy is a Haiku, Senryu, or a Tanka, and you can surf the internet to learn the details and the form. I love Haiku as they relate to nature.

Rhyme - oh boy!  I won't go there, as I just do it (incorrectly), but I sure have fun trying

Here is a great site on the internet I refer to when I feel like doing something different, and as a matter of fact, you have inspired me to do just that!

The sonnets:  http://www.english.upenn.edu/~afilreis/88/sonnet.html

Kellie, there is no better way to learn than to READ, if you read a lot you learn by exposure. Above all else, poetry should be fun, and creative - don't stress over it, just write what is in your mind and heart.  Have fun!

I pass this way but once so I hope to meet you.
