Lacking a cute and catchy way to pose this question: How does one go about reviewing poetry? I am a technical writer, as unfortunate and stilted as it may be. Everything I write is academic--which is why I am here to improve my creative process. Academic and technical writing is easy, especially in my field (political science), but poetry is exempt from all of those rules. Structure, punctuation, even grammar and syntax are thrown to the wind in poetry, and it baffles me what I should be looking for in the critiquing process. And we have a lot of poets here. The difficulty in critiquing poetry is plainly obvious when a work sits in the unreviewed box for hours on end. I want to fix that, and I need your help.
