I am excited to take this class again and focus on the more obscure meters... and practice favorites too. Hope it is as good and well attended as the last one!! The talent in that class was awesome. You are such a great teacher, Jim!!

    Many thanks for the six star review. We have no applications for scholarship this time and no takers so far. It is the thing most Fanstorians are weakest on but they don't seem to want to know about it.

well you sold me on the class. I am not too found of traditional meter in poetry, mainly because I just don't seem to get it naturally. my meter is always off somehow so I should sign up for the class.

Excellent way to advertise your class.

I would like to join the class but I don't have the time.

Good luck, Gent

I don't even know what to write. Giving this a six is almost an insult. I am BLOWN way. I was reading and didn't even realize you had done different meters. I didn't even know it was written in a format. It honestly sounded like beautifully instructions. Then it went deeper and I realized, wait, this IS what he teaching. WHAT??

Writing in meter (is that how you say it) is very hard for me. I wrote nothing but poetry when some friends, Visionary1234 (Sharyn, she has a poem up now I think and she hasn't been on in a while) and Rama Davi taught me. I started doing Every kind. Loved it. Rama even edited my 50 best into an actual story of pain, addiction, hope, recovery, etc. Pretty cool. But I had Rondeaus, Sonnets, different meters; trochaic tetrameter, iambic pentameter, etc.

And it NEVER got easier!

Haha.

So THIS piece blows my mind. I'm genuinely taken aback and Insanely impressed.

GREAT JOB WOW.

Thank you for sharing your knowledge. I'm one of those that attempt to write it a little but know absolutely nothing about it. You did a great job. Have a wonderful evening. Shirley

This sounds like a class in which one would get a lot of information and insturction on how to write good poetry. i wish I had the time to sign up and give it a my best, but my life is a bit out of control now, being on the computer far to often for my own well-being. Maybe later I'll try a class.

This is an outstanding and creative way to promote your forthcoming class. I would love to participate but time and expense are not on my side. I was in a different situation about nine years ago when I was thrilled to be able to take one class on Japanese short forms. It was excellent. I imagine all of them are...and also very beneficial to both experienced and fledgling poets. Best wishes!

An interesting sounding class, I would love to learn about meter use in poetry. I've been told more then once that my meter was off in a poem I wrote, but never really understood it. Thank you for the announcement. :)

Hi Jim, this is wonderful way to introduce your new class by writing a poem using the different metres. Even I, who don't know much about poetry, but enjoy reading them, learned something from your entertaining poem. I hope many will attend. Ulla:)))

Yep, you are very convincing, my friend. I do not do zoom and I usually do not do classes of poetry but thank you for this marvelous metric poem. Have a wonderful day,
Jesse

    Many thanks for this kind review. You need nothing special bar a camera and a microphone to Zoo. You should try it sometime.
