Remember how I said how much I loved acrostics? Turns out the editors at in parentheses do too! They’ve published four acrostics and a fifth poem of mine on their blog last month. I hope you will check these out! And the in parentheses is a great resource for exciting poetry and prose.
I use acrostics sometimes when I’m stuck or stalled in my writing. Grabbing a word and trying to shape a poem unlocks my brain somehow. I focus more on the structure of the poem and less about the story or meanings I might want to get across. And somehow that releases new combinations of words and images. Give it a try sometime! Acrostics work wonders!
Thanks for reading and thanks for the support!
