Does anyone have an interest in poetry? I picked up an interest while I was studying Latin in college (if you're studying Latin, you WILL take a class in Latin poetry, in Virgil if no one else). Adapting classical meters to English seemed like a fun excercise. I took a few classes writing poetry in English, and learned a few English verse-forms, although free verse seems to be the norm. Though I read some examples that definitely impressed me, I never got into the habit of reading poems in English and I wonder how I could get started. I never subscribed to any poetry journals and though I tried submitting a few of my poems I haven't written more than a handful of verses after graduating. (My Latin language skills are stagnating as well unfortunately).
