    hello and good day to ya all

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by James Higgins, Mar 20, 2012.

    first off i just started writing poetry again the first time i wrote a poem was my senior year of high school. my writing teacher told me i should get it published i got responses back from everyone in class that day saying that i wrote really good. i basically combined two different styles of poetry into one i of course remember the form of poetry it was but i lost the poem and dont know where it is anymore. and i never wrote any poetry again until about 3 months ago when i texted my pastor on my phone and said im gonna let the pen bleed out on the page i got some things to say. i dont really have much else to say i already have some poetry published but am wondering if i can get maybe get some help getting it notification i will of course post in here and do what i need to here as well. i like to write complex poetry basically saying i use more than 1 word in my lines to rhyme together basically stringing them together to create a multiplied rhyme. i did at one time sign up for a rap battle msn group but i lost the ability to post there and i guess you could say i just have fun writing poetry and finding words to rhyme together using syllables and you will find out what i mean in some of my poetry

    Welcome to Writing Forums, James!

    I hope you find what you're looking for here, whatever your interests in writing.

    This forum aims to provide the best workshopping resources on the internet, and to that end we have a few rules which you should familiarise yourself with before you get stuck in. The main section of the site is the Writing Workshop, where members can post their writing in order to receive critique of their work.

    However, before we allow members to post their work, they must have met some basic requirments. Firstly, you must have been a member for fourteen days, and have made twenty posts on the forum overall (please note, posts in Word Games do not count towards this). This is so that members, when they post their work, have familiarised themselves with the forums and contributed to them (as well as hopefully learned something for themselves). Secondly, members must provide two constructive reviews of other people's work for each piece of their own that they wish to post. This is because we believe that the focus of workshopping should be equally upon giving reviews as receiving them, as they allow a writer to practice and improve their editing skills, which they can then apply to their own writing.

    Beyond the Writing Workshop, you will find that we have extensive forums for discussion of aspects of writing, as well as a community area for general discussion. We also run periodic short story and poetry contests, which are good for challenging yourself and expanding your skills.

    If you have any questions or problems, then the moderators (myself and Cogito) should be your first port of call. Any technical problems with the site itself should be directed to Daniel, the site administrator and owner. I would recommend you have a look over the rules so that you know what to expect, and what is expected. But aside from that, I hope you enjoy your time here.
