About Poetry is Pretentious


Poetry is Pretentious is helping people get into poetry by providing daily prompts that are interesting and  easy to complete. The goal is also to provide a template for new and seasoned writers alike to begin writing poetry daily. 

Each week is dedicated to a new form of poetry. The forms are not your enemy. They are a tool to be harnessed in creating your daily poem. By giving you technical problems to focus on, the forms help you to create things you wouldn’t normally do. 

The main goal here is to just have fun. Don’t let poetry’s pretentious history scare you. Forget the meter, the typical subject matter and any other classical, or in our words, pretentious, roadblocks. Poetry is for everyone and poetry should be fun. 

Good luck to you all!
