:new: Still a plenty of room for articles if you interested! Please drop a note to CRLiterature ASAP :D

Hello all!

In the first week of March (4th-10th), we are hosting a week at projecteducate based on poetry forms. During this week, we would like to invite members of the community to come write informative/ educational articles to contribute to this week.

You can write articles:

- About specific poetry forms (with featured examples)
- "How to" guides on writing specific forms.
- Interviews with dA poets who focus on specific forms
- Art features (i.e. A collection of concrete poetry)
- Famous form poems/poets
- Workshops/ Prompts/ contests based on a form

These are just suggestions!

If you are interested in writing an article, please drop a note entitled "PE Week" to CRLiterature with an outline of what you intend to write. We are planning this in advance; giving you the chance for you to draft an article- which we are more than happy to review prior to the PE week! We will also arrange a day for you to submit your article and provide all information on how to submit on behalf of projecteducate

Back in September, we had a wonderful response for Art History, and we'd love the same level again!

Thank you! :heart:

(Prose Writers, Script Writers and Nonfiction Writers- a PE for you will be coming later in the year!)

I would like to write about lyrics, even though it is my forte, I'm sure it would be in better interests to call up Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey, or Lady Gaga, lols.

But it sounds like this is gonna be awesome.

May I suggest a piece on the use of dictionaries and thesauruses? As to how to use them properly in order to avoid repetition. Seems to be the bane of poets when beginning to write.
maxnort Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2013   Writer
repetitive use of certain words is not always banal. Humpty Dumpty had a thing, or maybe two, to say about that as I recall.
TristanCody Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2013  Student Writer
Of course they are not always the bane. But, when they are not, it is because the repetition was purposeful and not "just because". When you think of it, repetition, when done correctly, is a good thing (especially in certain forms of poetry). Yet, when it is done out of lack of word choice, that is a completely different scenario.
maxnort Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2013   Writer
the repeated cliche you speak of? to argue against us both for a moment: "usage of repetition is how cliches begin. therefore repetition should be avoided altogether." this is how it was said to me years ago. I countered with "avoid all hard-fast rules" which I had just been taught. the result was not pretty, rhythmical, or melodic; but was quite amusing.
TristanCody Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2013  Student Writer
Interesting. Then, can we think of the subject as such; repetition has its time and its place. How does that sound?
maxnort Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2013   Writer
it occurs to me that if I answer you by restating your statement,
since I agree with you, I could be guilty of excessive repetition

(ooooo! that's a good one! say it out loud and listen to it!)
