Abecedarian - a strange name for a fun poetry form! With abecedarian poetry, each line or stanza begins with the first letter of the alphabet and is followed by the next letter, from A-Z. A form of acrostic poetry, the abecedarian poem's first letter of each line spells out the entire alphabet.
Try your own! If you're short on inspiration today, try the Weekly Challenges to get you started. Have fun!
Also, take a pause to listen to Episode 3 of Line Break, the YWP podcast created by eyesofIris. You'll hear her interview YWP writer LadyMidnight about her abecedarian poem, Lost and Found.
Here are some more examples of abecedarian poetry from a YWP Writing on the Roof workshop led by Alexandra Contreras-Montesano last winter: Wishes (by eyesofIris); City Sunrise (by Love to Write); and Beasts of Blood (by Hazel.C).
