Salutations to all!
I have decided to open up a new group with the sole intent of providing the role of editor of your submitted poetry, providing feedback, critique and suggestions for enhancing the material.
I will be the first to admit I'm not overly qualified in an official sense, but do bring to the table that I have taken numerous poetry college classes, been a part of poetry groups that included contributing and critiquing college literary professors and have had several poems published in various periodicals. The one feather in my cap is that I have been nominated for a Pushcart Prize for a poem I wrote.
I will never be mean ("I'm sorry, but this is just not a good poem. It's terrible!), BUT I WILL BE HONEST and give you real feedback and suggestions you can use. If you are fishing for compliments on your poetry, this may not be the place for you. If you are genuinely interested in submitting your poetry for publication elsewhere and wish to receive helpful, usable advice, I would love to provide a soundingboard for you and your words.
Let's work together and make something wonderful!
