New Workshop( 11 September to 30 September)

Hi everyone
I will be running a workshop on using metaphors in place of emotions
there will be extensive writing involved as this is more of a hands on subject
metaphors are interesting but difficult . So between all of the participants we may be able to
1- sort out what exactly is a metaphor
2- how they are used(in our case in place of emotions)
3-why they are used
so come on in sign up and contribute to a learning experience

about undiscovered work

This section goes on for pages and pages . At one time it was comprised of only the works that remained unread. Now it is one read or less. I'm not sure when this change came about or how. Was it brought to a vote by the general populace, somewhere I read it was at the suggestion of One person. Neo Poet touts itself for being a democracy then be one and bring the vote on issues that affect the people directly to them so they may have a say. I've not seen anything brought to the general public for a vote in a very long time.
