Hi, I'm bob. Just joined yesterday. Been writing some poetry. I cant be very objective about my own writing (I think it all sucks) so I'm hoping to get some good feedback here.

I've been reading some of the poems you all posted here, they are not much like mine (further evidence in my head that mine suck).

Will start doing some critiques soon, as I appreciate that rule about contributing before posting your own work.

Hello, all.  Been writing since around 1970, poetry being my favorite form.  Burned some bridges and took about a 5 year sabbatical for various reasons, now I want to dip my toes back into workshopping. I’m mostly used to intensive crits, so honest opinions are appreciated. Look forward to discussions.

Thank you both for the welcome. I enjoy discussion as much as I do the workshopping. Always new perspectives to examine. I’ll warn you, sometimes it’s difficult to shut me up...

Feel free to start discussions if you like.  Thumbsup  We have two separate discussion forums, one for any topic you like and the other for poetry related things.  

If you ever just want to let off steam, then check out the sewer and the arse where (almost) anything goes. Wink

Hi all - I'm back for a bit. Will dip my toe in slowly. Can't get into the Sewer though - WTF?  Hysterical
Actually, it’s only really poëtry if it comes from the Poët region of France. Otherwise, it’s just sparkling whine. -- Traditional

Group memberships at all? But nevermind all that dirty sewer and arse talk -particularly the arses, so offensive.  The challenge is, can you recast your plaintive muttering about dipping your TOE  in SLOW ...THOUGH?  Into some kind of rhyming metre-ish verse?  Fail, and a resurgent England will thrash Oz 4-1, on top of their very strange victory over the Black Caps. (v Dies-el 2:41 et seq). big hug

Why must I be pure in the sewer? Are you sure?
