I write a lot of poetry. I think once I counted seven plays that actually started off as a poem. I bet you all write a lot of poetry.
Take one of your own poems, and see if you can work it into a play. Doesn't matter what length.
I've been really busy helping a friend with a shipment of stuff that's daunting....but I will read...just been a crazy week.

The dialogue in truly great plays is often poetic, isn't it. The characters would mean it as well as speak it, if it was a part of the storyline.
Shakespeare would be a great example of poetic playwriting.

I've often heard it say, that playwrights and poets are very close in terms of writing style.
I don't think I can ever quite explain why when I read a line I've written aloud, there are two too many beats, but there is a beautiful and necessary rhythm to playwriting.

Cool idea. I just posted a poem in "Critique my poem" which I've often thought was quite short-storyish. Now Im thinking maybe its a play........
Its a fine line that divides a play with poetic language from something too flowery and contrived. To be able to write a verse play or a poetic play and for the audience to almost not notice is a great skill if you can pull it off.
