About workshops

Workshops on Neopoet are groups that meet for a certain period of time to focus on a certain aspect of poetry. Each workshop participant is asked to critique all the other poems submitted into a workshop. A workshop leader helps coordinate -- they set the agenda, give participants feedback on whether their submissions and critique are at they level expected of them, and after the workshop is over, give feedback to participants. 

To join a workshop, first find one that is of interest to you. Once you have found the right workshop (and verified that it is open -- you can find this out in the description below), you can apply to join the workshop.

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.

Sorry to hear of your loss Ray - uggh.

Love this piece of dialog from Wandavision on Disney+ (where I NEVER expect to find poignant words of comfort):

"What is grief but love persevering."

Sorry I have been absent... I was supposed to have cataract surgery yesterday however it was cancelled because I have a bladder infection and temperature. I have been waiting for nearly 18 months for this surgery and now not only am I disappointed but ill as well.

Hope everyone going well, if I missed something please let know and I will try to get to it.

I hope the surgery will return vision to my left eye... as a writer and digital artist creating is slightly handicapped with one eye a blur.
I see you have a WordPress account, so do I... I will look up.

of the workshop. It was a pleasure to be in this one. I think that your instructions were pretty clear and even though some got a bit lost or sidetracked, it was not really due to the instructions, but rather a mix of people coming together in a number of time zones from all over the world. I think it went remarkably well under the circumstances. When we get the technics figured out and the members of the workshop don't have to scroll through a loooonnnng bunch of entries, I think it will be much better. ~ Geez.

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!

I realized that when I receive notifications of new comments (in the box on the top right) that the new comment notification is highlighted... I clicked directly on the highlighted word which took me the newest comment in the workshop... this has helped me with that endless scrolling part.
I didn't know you could do it.

I hope everyone is well... I have been a little quiet, not feeling the best at the moment.
