As you might know, I am currently following Blogging University’s Writing 201 : Poetry course and I already see many benefits.
So I came up with a list that I hope will convince even the most pessimists of you.
1/ It helps you process negative emotions in a very sane way
2/It keeps your writer’s mind out of the lazy zone
3/ It teaches how to deal with rhythm in a text
4/ It teaches how to silly things beautifully
5/ It teaches how to conjure powerful images with just a few words
6/ It’s a challenge
7/ Love, death, and desperation are no longer mandatory subjects
8/ You can include poetry in your other writing project and make them 100 times better.
9/ If you’re taking a Poetry class, you’ll see you’re not the only ne who struggles.
10/ You get the « I’m a poet » brag card
