American Sentence Poetry Workshop

Astraliia -An American Ballet of Dreams of Future Past

How to write an American Sentence Poem:

• One sentence, 17 syllables, end of story.
• Minimum words for maximum effect.
• It makes for a rush of a poem, and if you’re trying your own hand at these and decide to include the season and an aha!moment as Japanese haiku do—a divided poem with a hinge or pause separating the originator from the kapow!—well, more power to you.
• works best when there is an AHA! moment and when the modifier comes in the last word, or even last syllable
