My Writing Process: How to Write a 10-Line Poem

For the past eight weeks we have been looking at various 10-line poems, studying forms that were invented by fellow poets and teachers. Today I would like to showcase one of these forms, the Ercil, a decastich created by James Gray in honor of Arkansas poet Ercil Brown. And in particular, I’m going to show you by way of a video demonstration the process I went through to write one of my Ercils, namely, “Carolina Wren.”

 

Did this video demonstration help you at all? I’d love to find your feedback below.

    1. Thank you. I’ll have to admit my practice runs were easier than the real thing. I was nervous. 🙂 But it was fun, and I hope it helped someone. I noticed that there are several “how to write poetry” videos on YouTube.
