Friday’s and Upcoming Schedule

Tomorrow is friday and the normal day I make multiple posts with new material. While my writing tends to take a focus on friday and sunday due to free time from school, my winter break is fast approaching as is my poetic reading list. I’ll be reading the following: 

The Making of a Poem: A Norton Anthology of Poetic Forms by Mark Strand

Poetic Meter and Poetic Form by Paul Fussell

The Crafty Poet: A Portable Workshop by Diane Lockward

Each is considered a major publication on or around writing poetry and I’ll be reading in the order presented above so I can gain a grasp progressively. As I finish each book, I’m likely to take a stab at experimentation in Poetry and i’ll be sure to post it here for views/review. I’m currently finishing a poem in gnomic verse, and finished another as an intense example of alliteration. Fun stuff! Hope anyone who reads this has a great day and forthcoming weekend.
