A small challenge for the syllablically inclined
I have failed to get people to write sestinas in the past, but here are some much shorter poem challenges for you:
They are looking for English language haiku, tanka and haibun. Counting syllables is always fun - if you're an English teacher get your class writing. If you're an English student, tell your teacher.
I might even have a go myself, having spectacularly failed to write a poem a day during April for NaPoWriMo (http://www.napowrimo.net/)...
Ah well, back to marking.
