How do I learn to write poetry?

Poetry. A literary artform stringing together words and sentences in which the expression of feelings and ideas is given a certain intensity by using distinctive style and rhythm; poems collectively or as a genre of literature.

In reality, anyone can write a poem. But it’s not so easy to write a good poem. Here, we will leave you a few tips and best practices to use along the journey. Even if you’ve never written a poem in your life, these should help you get started. And, if you’re already a poet, who knows? You might still find something here to help you improve your work.

First, it is important to read poetry. Find what styles you connect with and enjoy reading and can furthermore, picture yourself writing. From sonnets and epics to haikus and villanelles, it can really help you to read and explore the various genres such as:

Blank verse, rhymed poetry, free verse, narrative poetry, and odes to name a few.

As far as writing is concerned, there are technically no rules for how to write a poem, but despite that, or even because of it, learning how to write a successful poem might feel more difficult than learning how to write a successful essay. In Toronto, you have a plethora of poetry resources available to you online or at the library for free! Check out the poetry section next time you’re in your Toronto book store and get to reading!

Second, note that it doesn’t have to rhyme. Additionally, rhyming should never prevail over meaning. Nothing makes a poem sound more awkward and amateur than a word that was obviously used solely for how it rhymes. If you’re writing a rhyming poem, and you can’t find a rhyme that works, go for a near rhyme, or rewrite the line you’re trying to rhyme to. You already know this if you read poetry (and if you don’t read poetry, we encourage you to do so ASAP). Free verse can be very powerful, but it is recommended to learn some forms to get a strong foundation first. Note that good poems should have some kind of rhythm. Even if they are free verse. It doesn’t have to be iambic or trochaic or whatever, but it does need a kind of musicality. Otherwise, it’s just a prose passage broken up into weird lines. Read it out loud if you don't hear it like you want or are unsure.

Third and last tip, don’t stop writing. In fact, the more you write, the better your poems will be. As in everything, practice makes you better. And don’t get discouraged if your earlier attempts are not as good as you hope. Keep pushing on, the only direction from here is up! If you’re still uncertain, Toronto offers several tutors specializing in Poetry. These writing pros(e) are available to assist you no matter what level you’re at or where you are in your journey to becoming a poet. Book a local Superprof Toronto tutor, today!

How do I become a poet?

To become a poet is to know what poets do here in Toronto.

Poets are literary artists who express emotions, ideas and thoughts through the use of verse; a creative writing technique typically characterized by a certain rhythm and style.

To become a poet in Toronto, you at least need to know the basics of poetry. A poem may be as short as a few sentences or as long as a few pages. The brevity of a poem is one of the things that can make it a more powerful experience for the reader. The other is the poet’s choice of words. As a poet, you would need to choose strong descriptive words so your reader can envision the message and feel the meaning behind your words.

It is of utmost importance to make sure your writing is both sharp and creative, which can be validated and perfected with the help of a Toronto poetry tutor! Superprof has several tutors that you can book for in person or online sessions - with the first session often being free. Consult with them on your level and goals first, then see where your writing could take you.

Can writing poems be a job?

The short answer, absolutely! In fact, the modern poet wears many hats: they can write songs, devise commercial jingles, author books of poetry, write for greeting card companies, work for websites and compete in competitions; just to name a few. Want to explore poetry as a job option? Get to networking, build your personal brand, and put yourself out there! If you need additional help, don’t hesitate to ask your Toronto poetry tutor for their advice and aid in this endeavor. Afterall, they are there for your benefit!
