Poem Writing Tips

Hello there!

I’m back with another post, NOT related to AAWC. I wanted to post something that doesn’t have to do with AAWC first, because… it makes things so much more interesting on my blog πŸ˜‰

I’m no expert in poetry, but I’ll be sharing some poem tips with you all that I find useful when I write poems. Hopefully you’ll benefit from this. Enjoy!

1. Rhyme

Poems sound so much more poetic when they rhyme, not to mention that they sound catchy too πŸ˜‰ You don’t HAVE TO rhyme every time you write a poem. I just really love rhyming poems, and rhyme every time I write poems.

2. Use Sensory Details

Poems can also be a form of story telling as well. Putting sensory details (what you can touch, see, taste, hear, and smell) into your poems can help your reader visualise what you wrote more clearly.

3. Have Fun!

This is really important as well. If your heart isn’t into whatever your writing, then don’t do it. Reluctance can be something that hinders you from reaching your full poem writing potentials! XD

  1. I love writing free-verse poetry, which doesn’t rhyme. But that’s because I absolutely SUCK at rhyming stuff! πŸ˜‚ I feel like it puts me in a box instead of letting me be all free with the poetry because I’m trying to figure out “what will work with this sentence?” But that probably is just me. πŸ˜› I like reading other people’s poetry on their blogs, and they do rhyme stuff. πŸ˜ƒ I even have a friend who’s like, a GENIUS at it! Her poems rhyme, and are awesome! So I think that these tips are really good. πŸ˜‰
