The Cinquain Poetry Writing Project examines a five line poetic form called a Cinquain. These poems have a set syllabic pattern where the first line consists of two syllables and the following three lines increase in length at a rate of two syllables per line before concluding in a two syllable final line (i.e. 2/4/6/8/2). However, there are variations to the pattern that include longer poems, multiple verses and even a complete inversion of the syllabic structure, so plenty of variety for poets to sink their teeth into.
All members and authors are invited to participate in this Writing Project.
