About Shaz Cheesman
(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoI live in a regional town out of Melbourne in Australia......I refer to this little place I live as 'Quietville' 

I am 43, although age is just a number not a definition. So I enjoy life as much as I possibly can. Writing has always been part of my life - mainly through journalling. But for the last 10 years I have especially taken an interest in writing poems......I have still a great deal to learn. Writing is my creative release.

I enjoy interacting with people and one of my favourite past times is getting involved in local amateur theatre, I enjoy playing comical and unusual characters on stage, but also enjoy coordinating and creating make-up effects for stage productions.

A question for P.S Goers

Hi There

Wondering is there such thing as a '50 word poem'  if so what is it's technical name? I remember taking a poetry workshop and that was one of the activities.....I actually wrote some of these - one being the 'Better the Devil you know' which I wrote about 3 years ago.

Cheers
Shaz

    Shaz, is there a form to it, for example, a certain number of words per line? If you google stuff like that, all kinds of explanations come up. So there ya go, your first contest!

    yes, there is, shaz but it has no name??... this can fall under categories like sonnets, quatrains, free verse, etc... just my 2 cents..:) hugggs!

    Hi Shaz, yep there certainly is and funny enough it is one of the contests at the moment in one of my local poetry groups, Robert Frost wrote 50 word poems and read 'Blackmail' by Frederick Everest, excellent work...David

    Fifty words sounds about right for a Shanzi. Sounds like a good exercise.
