Most of the downloads on this page are intended as open resources for poetry enthusiasts, particularly the writing prompts and editing exercises.

April 16th, "Rhyme, Rhythm, and Motion"

April 23rd, "Close Reading, Criticism, and Feedback"

April 30th, "Symbols, Simile, and Metaphor"

Writing and Editing Exercises

Each month I generate a handout of poetry writing prompts. I collect them from various sources or create them myself.
