“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.” Elizabeth Barrett Browning knew a thing or two about poetry when she wrote Sonnet 43. Most of us, myself included, find the thought of writing and understanding poetry, rather daunting! If you want to know the how-to’s of poetry writing, the New Richmond branch library River City Writers’ Group is beginning a poetry series. Learn all about alliteration, meter, and verse. The group meets on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month at 6 p.m. The writing prompt for September 19th is to write “what poetry is to you.”
In the meantime, find books on writing poetry.
