Poetry Resources

As I was writing my entry on Hailstones and Halibut Bones I realized my English Literature page lacked poetry resources. I decided to give poetry its own page and started collecting resources.

Academy of American Poets


Guidelines for Ten Poems

How to Write a Cinquain

Poetry Reading Strategies

Poetry Scavenger Hunt

Poetry Vocabulary

Poetry Writing with Jack Prelutsky

Poetry Writing with Karla Kuskin

Primary Resources


  1. Thanks, Bailey! Great list of sites. We love the Poetry for Young People series, too.

  2. Some great resources here - thanks

  3. Great list! I just found one today, which is poetry and writing. Lots of contests and ideas floating around there. I have a lot of poetry, it comes easy for me. I just have no idea what to do with it. I was just thinking this morning how I really need to use the resources I have and get moving on it.
