Available Clubs

Potlatch Poetry Club invites ALL participants to join. We practice a specific style of poetry that is selected by the monthly leader. That info is posted on Tuesday. Then on Saturday of that week, a challenge prompt using that style is posted at 6 PM FanStory time. No time limit is set for posting your work. Many post that night or as late as Tuesday of the following week. Picture selection is up to the individual IF a picture is desired. ANYONE wishing to write may write & post their work. The CLUB makes it EASY to locate the work of others for review. Promoting, or not, is up to the individual as is participating that week. One can drop in at any time, skip a week or weeks, return, or write every week. ORGANIZED BY: Jannypan(Jan) & damommy (Yvonne)

Not A Flash In The Pan
Want to write short stories? ‘Not A Flash in The Pan’ is for you. Flash fiction is great, but the short story gives you time to develop your theme, character, and plot. It lets them breathe and live. We'll look at how to craft a piece from beginning to end and work on different genres, perspectives and development techniques. The short story is a perfect stepping stone to novellas and novels. If you have the commitment and time, then sign up. This club will look at producing work of publishable length for anthologies and magazines on the 1500 - 7000 words range, as well as shorter exercises to build up to the full story (such as opening lines, paragraphs, character description, backstory, dialogue and so on).

Structured Writing Club
Katawt is 5-7-7 syllable count. Haiku is 5-7-5. Tanka is 5-7-5-7-7. All are based on Japanese writings. You'll have seven days to write a poem. After that poem is complete we will write the next one. The fourth week the Haiku must be words only. Let your words be the picture.

Meter Bleaters Club
If you enjoy the classical rhythms of metrical poetry both to read and/or to write then this is the club where you will find it. In the illustration above are the most common meters found in metrical poetry. We will never suggest you write a poem with a line length of so many syllables. As far as line length is concerned we will be using the terms in the illustration. Don't worry if you don't know what they mean. Join the club and you will find out eventually. More details on the club's discussion pages.

Picture This Challenge Group
If you enjoy interpretation, this is the group for you. We compose POETRY ONLY--any format--NO Short Stories. Every -two weeks- we compose an ekphrastic poem, which means it is written about what we feel or read into a piece of artwork/photo. Members choose the specific artwork/photo via an assigned date, so everyone gets to participate in the selection process.

The Fabulous Free Versers Club
Our purpose is to learn TRUE free verse poetry NOT just "words on a page". Free verse puts the writer in charge while still incorporating ALL poetic devices AND a few more. This is a chance to write poetry NO ONE ever dreamed of.
