List of 50 Poetic Forms for Poets by Robert Lee Brewer on Writer’s Digest

writersdigest2This list of poetic forms compiled by Robert Lee Brewer of Writer’s Digest includes links to each of his articles for each of the forms. Each article includes the requirements of the form, as well as examples, other related links, and definitions when needed. I also like Brewer’s suggestion that “It might even make a good year-long challenge to write one form each week of the year.” Check out his complete list below.

  1. Thank you for this Trish! I like to maintain a small list of forms I favor and others to try. I am curious of your experiences with Writer’s Digest. I subscribe to the magazine, but I’ve only just begun to sort through the resources on their site. Would you recommend any of their online workshops?
    Thank you!

    • I have not tried their workshops. I’ve been fortunate to have a lot of local resources for workshopping. I like the approach of the site and it seems well maintained and professional, so I would expect their workshops to be of good value.
