This Sunday, April 3, at 1:00 PM ET, the Down Cellar Poets will be meeting to talk about poem titles and other ideas. Everyone is invited to attend. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for the ZOOM link.
Anyone can submit even if they don’t attend the meeting. Email your poem title to email@example.com in the following format (so they can easily be copy/pasted.)
“Title of Poem”
Submitted by Your Name
Comments: (Optional) Feel free to discuss why you picked this poem title.
Think of titles that you would select if you were skimming through an index of titles to only read a poem or two. Here are some ideas for poem title topics (and please remember to use the above format.)
1. Famous poems that you think are great but have weak titles. Please comment and explain why.
2. Poems of your own that you stuck with your title even though workshop groups may have told you not to. Use the comments to say why.
3. Poems that you think the title is almost like a title in itself and can generate discussions on its own. Use the comments to say why.
4. Poems of your own that you are struggling with a title because you don’t like the one you have. Use the comments to say why.
5. Your favorite poem titles of all time, both your own and those of other writers. Use the comments to say why.
