what i notice a lot of time is that a partial rewrite is the only way of showing what you mean. in a line ny line you can suggest an alternative word etc, i often leave feedback on poetry i see with the most problems. the poetry i like gets a lot less constructive feedback (observations are good Smile )

I'm not a very wordy person, as some of you may have already noticed.
that's the same for many, and it's the honest part that counts. Wink

I find crit in the novice section the hardest, because i don't want to damage anyone who is just starting out...I end up writing too much and then adding in a warm and fluffy conditioner to make it all better. Undecided
Perversly I find doing the deeper crit is easier esp in the serious section as i don't have to hold back on a flow of thought. (Assuming I can work out what the hell the poem is about because half the time I'm not up on the subject / idea and I struggle to connect).
I do admire those with the ability to read and crit even on subjects they know nothing about - I find it very hard.
Like Mikey I have been having a bit of a breather. I was in a real rut (in life and in my writing) and was close to running off again to hide, but I'm glad i didn't -this place is one of the few good things going on in my life at the mo.
often it's not about working it out, it's just about what you see.. honest feedback teaches the novice poet to grow a thicker skin and realise that feedback is an integral part of workshopping and improving how we write poetry.
