Would anybody like some help to improve their poetry? Or even to learn to write it in the first place? With practice it is possible to write poetry without waiting for inspiration to strike.

I will run a poetry workshop if anyone is interested. Please post if you are!

Wow, that was quick, sophable!

What might be a good idea would be that anyone posting here tell me a little bit about what poetry skills they already have, if any, and what they would like to learn.

I want to, but am scared stiff for some reason. I remember I used to write a lot when I was a teenager and have written a poem or two here or there when something moves me in recent years, but ... I've never 'learnt' how to write a poem, or read about how to ... Anyway, count me in as a beginner and I will give it a go!

Anyone else? I'll probably do something about starting this tomorrow.

Might I be able to take part, as well? I would like to be able to write more regularly, as I only write in fits and starts. Sometimes get glimmers of ideas, but am unable to develop them further.

I usually end up just a frustrated blank slate, and thus don't "listen" for those glimmers any longer.

I'm starting the first exercise now. If anyone else wants to join in, please do.
