Poetry in many ways is the ideal creative outlet for those who want to continue to write regularly but who have a limited amount of time available each day to set aside for creative pursuits. Why? Even though we might think of poetry as a difficult form, it doesn’t have to be that way. Once we break through a few myths and perceived difficulties, we can begin to see that poetry can be an efficient, spontaneous, low-pressure, high reward creative outlet, perfect for the busy creative.
