Poetry Forum Rules:

1. Place a content warning by the side of the title in the subject heading like so; (content) "Title" for: Rape, graphic violence, adult content, excess of expletives. If you fail to do so it will be done by a mod.
2. Do not critique or attack the poet or critic.
3. Post in the most suitable forum:
a) Don't post in serious critique if you only want a bit of encouragement, support, advice, or an odd tip or two.
b) Don't cry or argue if you don't like, or don't agree with the feedback given.
c) Always give honest feedback without being cruel to others (It is possible).
d) Give feedback/critique to others. (It will help your own poetry in the long run).
e) Apart from the novice, serious and mild critique forums, feedback given will be down to the person giving it unless you state what kind of feedback is okay, if any. The onus is on the poet to let the reader know. 4. You have to be 15 years and older to use any of the Forums (this includes the Poetry Boards).

Due to poets being overly eager to post poetry (too many poems at once)
5. A new rule exists; One Poem Per Day in the Novice Forum, Mild Critique Forum, or the Serious Critique Forum. (NOT ONE IN EACH per day)
6. Only post in the Novice, Serious or Mild Critique Forums if...
you have already posted at least one considered, suitably detailed comment on someone else's poem in these or other critique forums


The Pig Pen could not exist without the interaction of its members. In return for the right to post your own poems and receive comments/critique, you must attempt to provide honest and meaningful feedback on the poems of other members, or interact in some other fashion on threads other than those you create for your own poetry.


Meaningful interaction does not include short, generic comments on poems (e.g. "I really like this"; "great flow"; "I can relate to this" etc).

Rules with *** Do not count in the Pig's Arse, or the the Sewer.
Rules are not written in stone and may change on short or without prior notice.
