Beginning Poets

Hello writer friends. I need your help.

A student asked me if I had a how-to guide for writing poetry. What step-by-step tutorial would help him get started.

I suggested that he just begin freewriting. Journal. Get things down on paper.

Then, add a form if necessary or helpful.

What would you tell that student?

  1. Found poetry is a good way to get the student identifying with words and phrases and understanding overall imagery. Incorporating the use of figurative language is also a good way to make words and ideas come alive.
