What is a free verse poem?

Free verse poems do not follow any rules. Their creation is completely in the hands of the author. The author chooses how to use techniques such as rhyming, syllable count, stanzas, line length, etc. Some of these poems follow natural speech patterns, while others use shortened or extended lines to convey thoughts and emotions.

How Do I Write A Free Verse Poem?

To write a free verse poem, begin by thinking of a topic. It could be a person, experience, or emotion. It could be topic about family, life, nature, or death. The topics are endless, but choose something that's close to your heart. That will create the most emotionally driven piece.
