The Masnavi Poetry Writing Project explores a Persian poetic form called the Masnavi. These poems are deceptively simple to write, consisting of an unspecified and unlimited number of rhyming couplets with no fixed rules regarding syllabic structure or theme. However, simple rules do not always result in graceful poetry, so the challenge here is to create a poem that is both simple and elegant.
All members and authors are invited to participate in this Writing Project.
