CFP: Lessons in Poetry; Form and Substance
Due: As Soon As Possible, but no deadline
A Poet Born, invites papers on any type or area of poetry, that teach a particular lesson in the genre. (alliteration, simile, couplet, sonnet, etc.)
A Poet Born wishes to bring good poetry, as well as inspiration and guidance in the genre, to a whole new arena that allows poetry to be more accessible and less mysterious to the computer generation.
**The Lesson should be 2-3 pages in length (single spaced) on a particular type or area of poetry.
**Feel free to use your own poetry as illustration of your point/lesson. If you use the work of another author to illustrate, you must provide footnotes of same, or a "Source List".
**Be sure that the lesson addresses the poetry student, not the poetry teacher.
The Teachers Corner section of the website is FREE to the public and will provide lessons in poetry, shared poems by published poets, guidance in getting published by editors, agents and publishers and more....anything that can be useful to the budding poet.
Please include a full one paragraph bio on yourself and be sure to mention any previous publications and if and where they are available. If you maintain your own web page, please include it in your bio and we will construct a link there.
