As a writer, Courtney Courtney Part of that voice is poetry.
Writing poetry is often made difficult because the genre is so difficult to define: does it have to rhyme? And what is iambic pentameter anyway?
Courtney found that a poem is essentially characterized by vivid and imaginative ideas conveyed in a way that lets the audience feel what the poet is feeling.

Courtney selected a piece called “Pith” to read for us during her Courtney on how to find her voice as a creative writer on WordPress.
