For this Writer’s Digest Poetic Form Challenge, I’m asking poets to write a monotetra or three. Please don’t stress out about the meter so much, because I won’t. But the rhymes and refrains, yes, please follow the rules. If you’re not sure, click here to learn more about the monotetra.
Many have already said it’s a fun form, and I totally agree.
As in previous challenges, the winner will be featured in a future issue of Writer’s Digest (the January 2011 issue to be precise).
The monotetra can be as short as one quatrain (or four-line stanza) and as long as a poet needs to get his or her rhyme on. So poem short, poem long, just poem.
The deadline for the monotetra challenge is September 7, 2010. Or roughly three weeks. So get writing today!
