I want to find other writers who are serious about wanting to improve and help others improve.
If you would be interested in being part of a group of writers.
Who trade honest and thorough commentary on each others work.
Please contact me.

...sounds like a poetic elitist coup to me!




The problem with this idea is the use of the word "serious".

good people, you are already part of a group of writers who would like to up their game and help others up their game.

you don't need permission, just go ahead and get cracking. have a look at some of the old workshop threads, you should find some really good pointers and opinions on giving
feedback and critique in an honest non-abusive way, seek out those who know their shit and ask for help, most don't bite  ...dunno about that Case fellow though

one of the possible actions which can be preformed on this site is if you click on a poets profile you can click on 'comments made' by the poet. so essentially you can read their critiques without even bothering them. I must confess to have done that a lot and totally recommend it

on that note, there seems to be a bit of a contradiction going on here


anyhow, best o luck with the endevours

I don't think there is a universal format. people get creative about how they format their stuff

I couldn't spell for shit when I joined, spell check is handy enough to get used to.

best thing I found to do was check out lots of other people's stuff and see what kinda techniques were being used

Read ... Read ... Read ...

It's frustrating in that the more I read - I find the more I don't know ...

Look at the work of others here as well as the work of classic and contemporary poets/writers ... since joining this site my library is now filled with poetry books, some of which I've gotten for as cheapl as a $1.00 at libraries or used book bins ...

Don't be afraid to make mistakes in your writing, take the critique and rework your ink

I agree with Lobo. Writing is like anything else.  Practice! The more you do it the better you get with it. Just like playing an instrument.

I need a person who is not afraid to kick my ass when it comes to writing. The kind of person that looks for errors for fun...Open invitation to critic my work

*Spelling should be 'critique'
*No capital letter needed on 'open'
*Full stop after 'work'

This is writing lesson number one. Read what you submit. Let the ass kicking commence.

I'll rip it a new eye tomorrow when I'm on the laptop. I can't provide adequate critique on a phone without getting frustrated flipping between pages.

Hahha. Wish someone would critique my works too. (Proofread)
My spelling sucks and my verb agreement worse.

I was on another poetry site a while back and those folks had no problem shredding everything I posted. The funny thing was the stuff their super scholars were writing was total nonsense. Or maybe I was to stupid to appreciate their talents. I bailed out of there after a month. So much better here at DU!
