About workshops

Workshops on Neopoet are groups that meet for a certain period of time to focus on a certain aspect of poetry. Each workshop participant is asked to critique all the other poems submitted into a workshop. A workshop leader helps coordinate -- they set the agenda, give participants feedback on whether their submissions and critique are at they level expected of them, and after the workshop is over, give feedback to participants. 

To join a workshop, first find one that is of interest to you. Once you have found the right workshop (and verified that it is open -- you can find this out in the description below), you can apply to join the workshop.


Join the Neopoet online poetry workshop and community to improve as a writer, meet fellow poets, and showcase your work. Sign up, submit your poetry, and get started.

I have found that being able to try different forms has helped me write in my preferred form. It would probably help YOU also lol........stan

oops...forgot to add my name.

Now, please don't forget this is not THE SHARK POOL. lol

I have written several forms of poems and it has helped me a lot with my writIng and understanding of poetry. Haiku is one of my favorite. I have writtens sonnets, senyu, and a couple of others. It's been a lot of fun learning here at Neopoet. Splash Pool has help me even more and will do the same for everyone taking advantage of it.

Happy learning
Barbara

Just going over rules for this shop :
1. each participant submits a poem of approx. 4-5 stanzas to Barbara via PM. This poem should be in your preferred form of writing.
2. poems will receive light critique
3. each participant will then be assigned a different form in which to write his/her poem
4. Ian has posted a blog on forms on stream to help you in this
5. each participant then submits poem in assigned form
6. light critique on new poem form
* note : this is a learning shop, so if you have problems ASK FOR HELP

Stan

S1-L1 - change 'shop' with 'workshop' for a more rounded feel to the line
S1-L2 - You may want to try changing 'Lou' with 'Barbara'
S1-L6 - consider changing 'in' with 'with'

Other than that a good solid piece, really enjoyed and you didn't mention nature either which is always a good thing! It did lack rhyme and feel you could have taken more time to turn this into a rhyme, or better still made each point a Haiku.

LOL!
