Playwrights, take a look at author, poet and playwright Peter John Cooper - Playwright's blogspot: http://spyway.blogspot.co.uk/2014/04/the-playwrights-craft-collaboration.html

The following post by Writer’s Relief Staff gives five unexpected poetry forms to inspire your muse and make your poetry stand out:
