Quiz: Which Type Of Poetry Are You? | Writer’s Relief

April is National Poetry Month! We all have unique personalities that can correspond to a distinct style of poetry, whether it’s Rhyming, Free Verse, Epic, Haiku, or Sonnet. With so many different types of poetry, Writer’s Relief can’t help but wonder how some of them might match up with our individual temperaments. Take this poetry fun quiz to discover which type of poetry you are! There are no wrong answers: We all get to be a type of poetry, and what could be better than that?

If you answered mostly #1:

You’re Haiku! This short-form poetry from Japan is made up of unrhymed lines totaling seventeen syllables or fewer. These small poems are big on meaning—just like you! You can learn more about Haiku here!

If you answered mostly #2:

You’re Rhyming Poetry! You like to rhyme some of the time, and that’s perfectly okay! And while rhyming poetry may not be all the rage right now, you like keeping things old school. Good news: There are journals that do publish this poetic form.

If you answered mostly #3:

You’re Free Verse! Just because it’s free verse doesn’t mean it’s a free-for-all. Good free verse poetry takes skill and talent—which you have plenty of!

If you answered mostly #4:

You’re Epic Poetry! While others keep things short and sweet, you don’t like to skimp on the details—just like this narrative form of poetry. You’re the hero of your very own odyssey!

If you answered mostly #5:

You’re a Sonnet! A fourteen-line poem with a variable rhyme scheme, a sonnet is literally a “little song.” And with a little song in your heart, you’ll “count the ways” you love this form of poetry!
