National Poetry Month Challenge Format List

Sorry this is so late, but as promised, here is the list of poetry formats which resulted from part one of my National Poetry Day challenge:

  • Acrostic
  • Ballad
  • Ballade
  • Canzone
  • Envelope Quatrain(s?)
  • Ghazal
  • Haiku
  • Heroic Couplet
  • Italian Sonnet
  • Ottava Rima
  • Pantoum
  • Paradelle
  • Rengay
  • Rondeau
  • Rubyat
  • Sapphic Stanza(s?)
  • Sestina
  • Shakespearean Sonnet
  • Terza Rima
  • Villanelle

I intend to fulfill my half of the challenge, but just in case I run out of time, and in order to maximize the educational benefits of this endeavor, I intend to focus first on those formats on the list with which I’ve never worked before.

Oh, and thanks are due to Joshua Gage for contributing most of the suggestions listed!
