A certain poet I know claimed that writing a pantoum felt like being dragged down the cold, winding steps to the catacombs. But we’ve been writing pantoums long enough this month that we know it doesn’t have to be like that. Some have even found that writing form poetry offers a certain freedom.
To help you see how to write a pantoum, and get your poetry out of the dungeon, we’ve put together another helpful infographic.

How to Write a Poem uses images like the buzz, the switch, the wave—from the Billy Collins poem “Introduction to Poetry”—to guide writers into new ways of writing poems. Excellent teaching tool. Anthology and prompts included.
