I like a challenge. Some people knit or doodle in their spare time, but I enjoying writing poetry. Not only do I enjoy writing free verse poems, but I also like writing in specific poetic forms such as the villanelle. The poem I wrote, “A Villanelle – Life in My Failing School” was published in Whirlwind Magazine in August 2016.
In the video, I explain the components of the villanelle and I read my villanelle.
I have included a villanelle template below just in case you would like to write one in your spare time too.
