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.

Here is how I feel about titles
a title is the first thing your reader sees thereby feeding the interest to read the work

Draw your reader in make them stop and say " hmm that is an interesting title wonder what it is a bout
for example rather than "dragons" as a title why not say Dragons of Delusia
I lost count of poems with the title "Love" to the point where I pass it by
It is ok to use love in your title but beef it up and get creative

My pet peeve with titles is using "untitled" i my humble opion if you have taken the time to compose a piece of work for petes sake give it a title
it is your creation

If you created a child wouldn't you name it
well as stated a poem is your child give it a title
and that is what Stan's workshop is about
here he will guide you through the process and purpose of a title and a good one at that

perhaps you do not agree with my point of view that means you are thinking. lets hear how you feel about it

So if and when we might find a title that fits our workshop poem could we then re-publish with the new title?
Of course with a go head

Thank you...Teddy

But you realize that although none of the suggested titles might not suit the author but they may very well get them to thinking about some options and they will come up with a better title of their own

author comment

Absolutely my thinking caps been on for days like I said a wonderful workshop

Thank you...Teddy

you might verify this but I beleve when you hit edit you can change your title

When I call on you to post just post your poem with its original title on stream with (titles workshop) next to title. You likely need to catch up on the conversation which is also on stream under "TITLE SHOP...let's begin"

author comment

Of course not! If you check the main workshop thread where assignments are being given you will see that I asked you to post your "poorly" titled poem earlier today.

author comment

I'll join if you have space for me? thanks

I'll get you on the list in a few minutes. Please be sure to catch up on the conversation here and of the other titles thread

I hope I find it today but have been busy. I'll be around daily though. Not sure what I may add to this conversation, it seems its an opinion pole of sorts?!

I like titling my poetry as it gives me the feeling of authorship like little else does. I understand the bit about it being like your child. I agree! Making it unique for me is becoming a problem due to having written so many poems for so many years. It's a tad more challenging than before but not impossible. It's like having a hat on in a winter storm, you're glad to have the warmth and protection it provides. Perhaps copyright issues would be less with a titled poem?? Just my two cents.

" TITLES....let's begin" that is where most of the discussions are as well as where assignments are handed out.
I agree that after a while keeping from repeating titles can be difficult.

Oops sorry you may delete this post please. I just saw that I already posted here. Thanks
