As someone who writes everything from poetry to how-to instructions to marketing copy to newsletters to interviews to fiction, etc., I’d have to say that poetry is every bit as difficult (if not more so) as any other type of writing. Why? Because poetry does not have a defined end. It can always be revised and modified to give better or, at least, different meaning. There are poems that I will revise 30+ times–and no other writing goes under that much scrutiny. Shorter does not mean easier–unless the writer is under that impression him or her self.
