Cloudy Day Art #79 – Discussion of Poetic Forms with Thom Ingram

Thom Ingram - Poet GuruThis week’s poetry podcast features a recent discussion with Thom Ingram about the importance and non-importance of learning, studying, and using the various poetic forms in our everyday writings.

It was a great discussion and I definitely learned a few insights that I will use in the construction of my own poems.

We would love to hear any feedback on this subject that you may have, so please leave a comment, send an e-mail or call in to the voicemail line with your thoughts!

  1. I have always thought that poetry is like painting. One must master the fundamentals of construction, such as The Golden Section, perspective and so on before one can begin to experiment. Learning about and mastering the technique of sonnet writing or pantoums or whatever can only help in the production of any writing. Great podcast. Definitely added this site to my favouites.
