Apparently Crystal

this forum looks slow, but not dead Can't Post

Ambivalent about joining at all. Forums are best when liveliest, a bit of fractious conflict and a rich creamy slather of the desire to be helpful. Scribbling alone only goes so far; one needs other minds to sharpen against.

Publishing is changing, reading is changing, who wants poetry and how much and why is changing. And I spend far too much time on the internet not in pursuit of this thing I love. That, too, ought to be changing.

Good at sonnets, decent with structured forms generally. I struggle with freeverse but sometimes hit it.

Buy this book!

You might like the Poetry Editor & Poetry blog. I'm always glad to hear ideas and questions from poets too.
