Welcome to the possibilities of the English language, my friend.
This is my in-progress compendium for all things poetry. What I’ve learned, what I’ve written, and where I find inspiration. I’m excited to share this part of my life with you all!
While researching and furthering my own knowledge, I’ve had a lot of requests for quick, easy lessons and guides that break down the very basics of the craft. Poetry, like music, is an ever-changing art form, and each structural or literary device will connect with different people. If something doesn’t vibe with you, move on to something that does. Life is short and, hopefully, so are my lessons.
They say “those who can, do, and those who can’t, teach.” You can determine for yourself just how true that statement is by perusing my own works from the above menu.
Why do I write these words? Why do I see the world this way? Take a glimpse into my scattered mind and see what inspires me. I’ve broken down some of my favorite poems and analyzed the impressions they left on my soul.
If you have any questions or requests for future lessons, please reach out. I am always looking for new things to talk about and share!
If you are interested in learning about the other half of my writing life—worldbuilding and fantasy fiction—be sure to visit my main website. Thank you so much for your time, my friend.
