For this Writer’s Digest Poetic Form Challenge, I’m asking poets to
write a cascade poem. The cascade poem is a great form for poets who are intimidated by meter and rhymes, because neither are necessary for this form. Click here to read my earlier post on how to write a cascade poem.
As in previous challenges, the winner will be featured in a future issue of Writer’s Digest (the February 2011 issue to be precise).
The length of your cascade poem will be determined by the number of lines in your first stanza, since each line in that first stanza is the final line in each stanza afterward. (Again, click on my earlier post if you need an example.)
The deadline for the cascade poem challenge is November 1, 2010. Or roughly two weeks. So don’t sit around waiting for inspiration to strike. Get poeming now!
