The Great, Big, All-Inclusive Critique Workshop

Description:
 
A lot of folks who don't offer critique (who aren't doing so for selfish reasons) don't offer suggestions because they don't feel qualified. They don't have the terminology, the technical skills, the poetic know-how, or the formal education overall.
 
This workshop is intended to serve the needs of readers and writers who want a foundation for suggesting revisions and giving writing advice.

Description: Short form appeals to a reader's imagination and goes across cultural barriers.

It disciplines the poet and requires the most precise choice of words in the same time leaving a good degree of pleasant ambiguity.

How to use a poetic toolbox – personification, extended metaphor, allusions, alliteration, repetition, rhyme, meter – in short form? Without a doubt it is a difficult question, however, it is well recognized that structure and patterns make a short poem esthetically pleasing.
