The Acrostic Poetry Writing Project explores an old and often unappreciated form of poetry - the acrostic.  Acrostics are poems where, traditionally, the first letter, syllable or word of each line spells out the title or theme of the poem.  This poetic form dates back thousands of years and examples can even be found in the Bible.  Acrostics can be long or short, with lines varying in length, the core challenge to poets being the incorporation of a message in the text.

All members and authors are invited to participate in this Writing Project.  If you think you would like to take part, please click on the "Participate" link in the banner above, where you will find the rules related to this Writing Project, links to information about acrostic poetry to help you understand this poetic form, and the submission form you are required to use when submitting your acrostics to The Authors Haunt.
