Whether you have never written a poem or you are an experienced poet, you can easily express yourself creatively by writing traditional short-form poetry of 2-6 lines. In this course you will learn about and write in nine different forms from all over the world, many based on counting syllables, and most non-rhyming. Have fun discovering your talent for writing haikus,
tankas, cinquains, shadormas, sijos, tercets, quatrains, humorous clerihews, and landays, the poetic form of Afghan women.
