Weekly Writing Tips - Poetry at Work Day

Today is National Poetry at Work Day! Take some time today to write a poem about your job, your coworkers, or even the water cooler. Whatever you choose to write about, use some of our tips below.

1. Read a lot of poetry.

If you want to write poetry, start by reading poetry.

2. Don't obsess over  your first line.

If you don’t feel you have exactly the right words to open your poem, don’t give up there. Keep writing and come back to the first line when you’re ready.

3. Paint with words.

When a poet paints with words, they use word choice to figuratively “paint” concrete images in a reader’s mind.
