Are you inspired by the poems and poets on our site? Or would you like to write something uniquely your own? In either case, it's time to craft a poem!

Here’s where you can start:

  1. Try one of the writing prompts. You'll learn various strategies to easily put pen to paper. If you enjoy these, why not sign up for The Daily Poet, and you'll receive a new writing prompt every morning for a month.
  2. Write in response to a poem you’ve read. This is called a response poem. Learn more here.
  3. Try our writing workshop. Poet Damian Rogers will take you through a month of writing practices.

Even if you only write one poem, submit it to our poetry journal,VOICES/VOIX. You may become a published poet!
