    Poetry issue, definitely plot related

    Discussion in 'Poetry' started by Apollypopping, Mar 28, 2017.

    So I have a character and he's a poet. It's a major plot tool that I don't feel I can remove, but I personally cant write poems. I don't want to plagiarize but I cant do it myself. Anyone know of any places I can find some poems or people willing to write two or three?

    What sort of metre are you after? I'd be happy to give it a crack if you want to private message me. I do some poetry on the side but it isn't my main area of creative focus so I might not be as polished or proficient as you're hoping for. But it could be a fun way to break up my long stints of novel writing!

    Out of curiosity, why do you need the actual poems to write a poet MC?

    Or just skip the actual poems. There's plenty of novels about writers or poets that never include a line of their "work." There are ways to write around it.

    I am sure you'd find plenty of takers here is you posted in poetry section with prompts for poems. You can then pick the ones that suit your needs.

    I'd be happy to attempt something for you.

    They're prophetic. I also want to incorporate it as a form of communication between two MCs. Like a coded message.

    I'll pm you when I crawl out of bed. Any working knowledge in poetry is better than my zero knowledge. BTW, fan of your avatar pic.
