Don't let the schedule scare you. This isn't about writing great poetry, this is about writing the poem you mean to write and being willing to see how well the concept extends in different formats.

If you want to be a serious poet, these are some of the excercises you need to undergoe.


This has motived me more than anything to get better! I'll do my best but can't commit yet.
