New members! Tell us what you feel. It helps you.

You may feel unqualified to comment on poetry but what you feel counts.

What you feel as a poet, reading poetry, counts. So tell us. I have heard members say they don't feel qualified to give critique because they don't know much about poetry.

Some of the best critique I have ever received is from people who just tell me what they felt when they read the poem. You do not need to know anything about structure and form. You need to be a poet with the generosity of spirit to tell what you feel to another poet.

There is an unexpected side-effect of speaking honestly with other poets about their work- it improves your own work. As you speak about what works for you or doesn't about another's work you inherently learn what works and doesn't in your own work.

Please, read other peoples works and tell them what you feel.
to help yourself,
