Join the Neopoet online poetry workshop and community to improve as a writer, meet fellow poets, and showcase your work. Sign up, submit your poetry, and get started.


When I review a poem, I am being honest and open about my thoughts
as to what I believe needs work and what I think works well there. Sometimes I may write
something that you or others do not agree with. We are a very diverse community.
But, please note, I will never try to degrade a writer or simply say things I
do not totally feel or believe.

Just because a page full of praise is presented, you, as a writer, should still try
to take in all of your feedback.

If anyone would rather I did not review their work, a private message is all it
will take. I will not be offended.

Respectfully submitted,


I'm in total agreement with you and feel the same way ...


you are a gem sir.
Thank you!

Please, tell me that some idiot did not take offense at your words.
There are no words of your's I will ignore
no thoughts I will not consider,

and honestly, those who would be offended by the honest and objective criticisms of a poet such as you, are either completely stupid, or so self absorbed that they cannot pull their head from their a-
oops, never mind!

no PMs from me;
read my poems
and critique away,
with impunity!

I have felt they did.
I appreciate you greatly Jim. I have always valued your opinion. At times, you have helped me see things in
a different light and always give very good advice.
Thanks for the support and kind words. :)

I have never taken any of your critiques to be out of line and have found most to be very helpful so please continue......scribbler

Always, they have been meant to help. Just another perspective at times.
I know it helps me a lot!

I taken offense to any of your comments/critique. You are one of the fairest and most encouraging people I have ever met. ~ Gee

Comments and critique are vital to this site!
Even if you just say: I liked this story or your spelling
of a word is wrong, take the time to write a line or two
and comment. Your fellow poets will thank you!
