Limerick, Haiku, & Other Poetry Writing Resources

Here’s my How To Write A Limerick article.  And for other good information about writing limericks, I recommend visiting these fine sites: Speedy Snail’s Limerick Rhythm and Meter and OEDILF on Writing A Limerick. 

If you’d like to try my weekly limerick writing contests and compete for Limerick of the Week, you can find my Limerick-Off limerick contests here and the Limerick of the Week Winners Lists here. And if you’d like to try other limerick contests, you can find my round-up of limerick contests here.

As for writing haiku and other poetry, Wikipedia has some helpful information about writing haiku, and Shadow Poetry is an excellent resource for info about a wide variety of poetry forms.
