workshops should continuously be under media's coverage.
it is what distinguishes Neopoet from other sites, I believe.

likely are a Lot of people who are famous for reasons other than their poetry. Perhaps periodical digging one of them up and posting one of their poems would be a good idea. And this would be a really good time to start. Did you know Leonard Nimoy was also a published poet? Why not delve into this and display one of his poems.

Or you could take somebody who is mainly known for their poetry and let us know of their other accomplishments. Just an idea

care to make a start?
I need concrete input here.

"In memorium for Leonard Nimoy". I had no idea he was a poet until it was mentioned after he died. I then read 5-6 of his poems and realized he was a very good minimalist free verse poet (at least in my opinion). Should be easy for one of the media types here to take this and run with it. Or are you asking for something already completed? I could give such a shot and zip it to one of you via PM and then you can use it or not as you see fit

do that, please. Remember to copy and paste to save yourself ages of typing time and us the grief of having things misquoted.

"He who draws noble delights from sentiments of poetry is a true poet, though he has never written a line in all his life. ~George Sand, 1851"

Here is my first. I'm sure others have more.
I end my comments with one:
"Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary. ~Khalil Gibran"

W. H. Snow

A poet is a nightingale, who sits in darkness and sings to cheer its own solitude with sweet sounds. Percy Bysshe Shelley

I hope to eventually have holiday specific contests as well as monthly. But until then why not choose a poem from among the members which is specific to each celebration. For example, St. Patrick's day is coming up then Easter.

Most times during the year I put poems on stream that are for that day in my memory but some are a memory I have in my banks, my St Patricks is of a love I knew, but couldn't keep, and it is now 37 years ago though it is half my lifetime ago it is as yesterday.
I always post the remembrance poem I wrote it has been put on stream for the last few years but it is only there for a short while as St P I will look in my library and see about the special days ones and send them.
I have even put the words to the Taps on stream but sometimes I lose faith in others when seeing how many comment on the words..
My Father fought in Egypt during the 14-18 war he went in the army when he was 17 to be with his brothers..
We need a blog or something to be able to put them so they can be copied and pasted if they are good enough to go on the new edition of Neopoet.
I will leave the thoughts to you and Jess also Wesley.
You take care out here, Yours Ian

i love how everyone's joining in the conversation. keep it going guys, we're doing good.

How about listing the poets on Neo who have published work in print? It might be a plus for the site, or, it might not. Whatever you deem fitting.

if anyone wants me to mention their work that's been published, let me know. it seems like it would be great advertsing; come join our site! we have published artists!

Have 1 e-book published : To Walk Beneath Aspens. Also have a number of poems in 3 or 4 anthologies

Have one book published "One Love Two Worlds"
Also I have poetry in around 40 poetry books anthologies and other poetry books over the last 20 years,
I put most of my writing on a web site:-
yenti.co.uk
This also has some of the workshops and things of interest on but is purely there for reading, as when first put out the comments were all advertising, though my Email addy is there.
Yours Ian xx

'Each for the joy of the working, and each, in his separate star,
shall draw the Thing as he sees It, for the God of Things as They are.'
(Rudyard Kipling)

I think that any book published will give an insight to the author along with the poetry they write, and its a damn good ad lol.
It must be late where you are,
Have a good night, Yours Ian
