Poetry Magnum Opus

A Shameless Plug for the Reference Section


Recommended Posts

I know some of you occasionally scroll down to the reference section but naturally the primary focus here is the Member's Poetry which is as it should be.

However, with the recent change of format at PMO, the reference section went through extensive "clean up" and a little reorganization. I am really pleased with how it has turned out. There is certainly more out there to research and I will add it when I find it. I am searching. adding, improving, clarifying all of the time. But I think most of whatever is out there about the craft of writing poetry has now been documented here.  And I am always open to ideas, suggestions, corrections you may have, just let me know.

So if you have some time and are so inclined, scroll down the page check it out.. Or if you have writer's block and need some ideas to jump start your muse the world of poetry is a treasure box of ideas, maybe a new approach to an old idea is just what you need. See how the cultures of the world approach writing.....Explore the Craft of Writing From Around the World ...

Pick a genre, pick a culture, pick a structure, pick a technique or meter, explore! You might find it fun.

The work you have put in here is outstanding. It's good to be able to browse many of the things that would take forever to find on the net or in libraries etc:. It makes this site a most useful tool: a reference/study point even for those who choose not to post their poetry. Thank you for all your efforts. Geoff. :smile:

You are so amazing Judy. I occasionally do scroll and look through the resources you have listed. The few times I have seriously gone through some of the extensive library you posted I have gone away with more enlightenment for the poems I have written. The wealth of knowlege, wisdom, and understanding you preesented on this forum of poetry makes us allhere only wiser in the poery universe.


Now that you are done reorganiing it I will have a lookse. All I can say is a big thank-you. I hope those that just are passer-bys of this forum who look through your efforts truly get impressed at you work. And that they marvel over your garganteous efforts.

Hi Tink,


Just to add my deep gratitude for your immense work in the Reference Section of PMO. It is a veritable feast for all, both novice and veterans of poetry. :smile:

Wow, not aware of this section. This is a great resource like the Poetry Dictionary I bring from time to time. Thanks, Tinker.
