About Me

I am 16 years old and I enjoy writing poems. For me, writing is a passion because I've always treasured the power of words. Some of my influences include Edgar Allan Poe, Paul Laurence Dunbar, Robert Frost, Billy Collins, and Thomas Moore. I hope you guys enjoy my writing.

I mostly write rhyming poetry and free-verse, but I also write many articles and essays, most of which are about poetry. I pay close attention to how my poems flow. In my rhyming pieces, I'm very particular about the meter, and I try to give my free-verse pieces a rhythmical feel too. I view poetry as both a craft and a form of self-expression. (I have some poems in my blog, but they are of lesser quality than those I post).

I love to discuss poetry with others, so if you're looking for someone to share ideas with, please send me a message.

My reviews are usually in-depth and technical. I critique whatever I think can improve: that includes grammatical errors, visual presentation, meter, word choice, imagery ... You name it!

I send read request to all my friends when I post something, so don't feel obligated to review or even read my work if you don't want to. (I don't review every read request I get, especially if it's a writer I've reviewed plenty of times). If you get tired of me sending you RR's, just message me and tell me to stop. Trust me, I won't mind.

I welcome constructive criticism, so If you have nothing nice to say, please leave a review.

Thanks, William. All of my writings are published so only members of this site may read them, so I was wondering if I am the only one who does this here or if others do too.
