Word Craft: Prose & Poetry

Word Craft: Prose & Poetry is an uplifting community where poets can learn the basics of writing Japanese and American syllabic poetry by sharing their own poetic inspiration within a weekly poetry challenge called Tanka Tuesday.

Tanka Tuesday runs from Tuesday through Sunday of each week. On Monday, I publish the Weekly Poetry Challenge Stars to showcase the creativity of the challenge participants.

Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge Rules

Participants submit their poetry written in one of the twelve forms: haiku, senryu, haiga, tanka, gogyohka, haibun, tanka prose, renga, solo renga, cinquain, and its variations, Etheree, nonet, and/or shadorma. Poets receive positive feedback from peers who inspire each other to stretch their creativity. Participants and readers return each week to celebrate the weekly poetry stars and to buy books from the Tanka Tuesday Book Store.

Are you ready to write some syllabic poetry?

I’ve done the work of researching these forms for you. Word Craft: Prose & Poetry is available as an Ebook and a Print book. Let’s write syllabic poetry together! ❤
