Need to help my cousin with his poetry
« on: September 29, 2008, 01:57:32 AM »
Hello everybody, in today’s world each one of us have some or the other ways to express our talents. There are a wide range of people with different talents and here I am to help my cousin feel better. He has interest in writing poetry but the problem is a place where he can find enough exposure. I don’t believe that he will get a straight forward or a quick response but may be a way into the poetry community with inputs from others.

Any help will be appreciated.

Tell him to check out WEbook.com

It is an online criticism tool. You can "start a new project," which basically means a new book, poetry compilation, etc.etc. Once it is posted up, people can read your stuff, rate it, and give you some healthy criticism. No one is really harsh on the site so it is a nice way to get some really good feedback.

There is much online content to educate you about this. I think that your friend needs to be a bit more exposed to the online world so that he can select the best sources for his poems. But, in my opinion I would advice your friend to consider visual poetry which is a network for poets to make their work handled with a touch of creativity. There are members there who add a magical touch, which is motion graphics, video, photography, paintings and other features that gives your poems a new look and a way to present itself with. I hope that you would love to see your poetry presented in the form of visualized poetry

i'm sure no one on this site cares about poetry... Bother someone else. [WTF]

Before you randomly flame people online, maybe take a second to think about what you're saying.

I am an English major in college and will either go into story writing or poetry when I graduate. So some people do care about poetry on this site.

Not to mention, this post is months old. Don't bring up old, dead posts for no reason but to flame someone.
