Absolutely. I believe anything that will expand a poets portfolio of knowledge, regarding poetic forms, is a great idea. As you stated, if you were to do this on an occasional basis, it would allow poets to see how certain forms are done. It would encourage poets to step out of their safety zone and try something new.

Gosh it is nice Team Poetry ASKS OUR OPINION! I can think of other sites where one is NEVER given a choice. They just do it. I'm too new to judge this well but I wanted to stop by and say thank you!

This will give many poets the opportunity to challenge themselves in areas that they may not be comfortable in,
and that is what drives most of us to writing poetry. I hope you are not planning to shut down other forms, but perhaps a separate feature of form for that day would make some take the chance of trying the form.

I really need to learn so much including what the different forms are. So it would be helpful to someone like me.
(By the way, my stiff fingers hit the report to moderator button when I was reading someone's reply. Please Ignore!)

I did try new forms of poetry, so I answered yes. When I see the name of a new form I just look up the definition and then try writing it.

Besides having just a "P" inside a Star for Premium Member, there were some "CUPS" beside the Star. Have the flame inside the cups dwindled??

Who are my "Brothers' Keepers?? How does the Bible VIEW eternal punishment by man? Is this greatness too, the removal of some rewarded "Cups". Matthew described the Scribes and Pharisees as making it difficult for the people to praise God!

I voted no because there are legitimate forms of poetry I wouldn't waste my valuable time on.
If I completed a poem and wanted to publish it on that day when one of those forms are the only form allowed, I'd simple log into another poetry site and publish it there. Anyone with foresight can see that it would be driving poets away from PS.


We would never limit what forms are posted on PoetrySoup. Poets will always be able to post any form. We are just asking, would you like to see a specific form featured occassionally. We used to do it and poets loved it.

What is the meaning for the acronym N/A as the results of a Poetry Contest. If its Not Applicable to the Topic, and others poets give positive feedback to the write, then they were able to comprehend what was written with regards to the topic. In order to really encourage poets, if N/A means Not Applicable and persons can relate it to the Topic; may I suggest that the Team place it under "Mentionable" the same time N/A should be placed? This would not be a prize.
