Cinquain Poetry Challenge

Hey there! So, how much do you know about the Cinquain as a poetic form? Did you know that they are not all syllabic? that some rhyme? and some are more than five lines long. Beginning February 1st, we will study Cinquains together to learn, grow, and build our repertoire of poems. I look forward to growing with you, and I can’t wait to read what you come up with in this challenge.

Here is a list of all the Cinquain poetry challenges that we will study here at Dark Side of the Moon beginning February 1st. The items in the list will become live links as we get to them.

I hope you find this index to be useful in your study of poetry.Ā Happy writing!
