I think that over time poetry has fallen into the shadows. However, sites like WordPress have helped to keep the art alive. The rate that people have read poetry is declining. So want can we do to make it cool again? Why is it declining and what can we do to persuade more people to look into it?
I write poetry to help with the songwriting that I also do as a hobby. Practicing poetry can help to make songwriting better since it also uses a few words, has rhythms and beats.
To bring poetry back I think we need to show people how it connects to other parts of the art world. As I’ve said before it can help with songwriting. Poetry can also be apart of paintings. It could be a part of a book. It doesn’t always have to stand by itself.
