WORRIED YOU CAN'T WRITE IN THE GRID FORMAT?
You may have already written GRID POETRY without even realizing it! If you have written poems, I'd encourage you to take a look at them with a "fresh set of eyes." If a piece contains a good deal of repetition between lines, it's quite possible your poem could be effectively formatted as a GRID POEM. Try it out! Or, set out to write a fresh one, with the structure in mind. If you get stuck while formatting your piece, feel free to CONTACT US for help.
