Is there a poetry template available somewhere for Word?

I haven’t come across one. Poetry, by its nature, lends itself to create structure and layout, that would defy templatizing. If your poetry is relatively simple and straightforward, break the lines where it feels good to break them. Don’t agonize over punctuation, but use it to give the reader the pacing you think the poem calls for. Exercise your creativity.

One thought on “Is there a poetry template available somewhere for Word?”

  1. I have now seen poetry-formatting templates from two sources: Joel Friedlander (bookdesigntemplates.com) and Derek Murphy (creativindie.com). I’m sure there are others. This is just in time for one of Touchwood’s latest projects!
