Writing poetry, or beginning to write poetry seriously, seems to throw up unique problems. We’re often faced with students who are either filled with dread at the prospect of writing a poem, or ones who feel quite confident about what is required, but know very little about it.

Perhaps you, too, are prevented from achieving a breakthrough because of your notions about what poetry is.
