#TheWombwellRainbow #PoeticFormsChallenge. It is weekly. Week Twenty-two is a Welsh form a #Toddaid. I will post the challenge to create a first draft of a poetic form by the following late Sunday. Please email your first draft to me, including an updated short, third person bio and a short prose piece about the challenges you faced and how you overcame them. Except when I’m working at the supermarket I am always ready to help those that get stuck. I will blog my progress throughout the week. Hopefully it may help the stumped. Also below please find links to helpful websites.

The toddaid is a Welsh poetic form of quatrains (or four-line stanzas).


Comprised of quatrains (or four-line stanzas).
Lines one and three have 10 syllables; lines two and four have nine syllables.
Lines two and four end rhyme.
A syllable near the end of line one rhymes with a syllable in the middle of line two.
A syllable near the end of line three rhymes with a syllable in the middle of line four.

Note on length: Toddaid can be one stanza  or multiple stanzas.

Thankyou to Writers Digest for the above information.
