Although I haven’t been blogging about it, I’ve spent the last several weeks enrolled in yet another online poetry class. This time, having finished the basic poetry sequence offered by my previous instructor, I decided to try something new.
And it’s been great. Trouble is, the class is ending next week. One thing I’ve learned from all these online courses is that I really do benefit from assignments. So to keep myself writing, I want to find some good sources for poetry prompts and exercises. I’ve already got files and bookshelves filled with fiction exercises, but I’m still new to the world of poetry.
So, practicing poets, please help me out. Leave a comment referring me to your favorite sources for poetry prompts and exercises (print or online), and tell me how they’ve helped you.
Thanks in advance for helping me develop this list of “finds,” and have a great weekend!
