    Popped in to peek at poetry

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by vangoghsear, Dec 20, 2007.

    Popped in to peek at the poetry and decided to stick around a bit.

    Usually, I write plays. I've had a short one act published, and had several produced. My latest, an adaptation of a novel to the stage, was produced by a professional theater company this past fall.

    I've written a novel (as of yet unpublished), a bunch of poems, skits, puppet shows and song lyrics. Currently, I am putting together a selection of my poems to either submit to a publisher or, if I can't interest a publisher, self publish.

    My spelling capability relies very heavily on the computer, and my grammar is so-so, so any help along those lines is appreciated. :)

    Thanks guys, see you all around the site.

    Hello Van Gogh's Ear (sounds rather detached...), Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    If you haven't explored the site yet, you should probably do so soon. Newcomers often gravitate to the Lounge, the Word Games, or the Writing Workshops, but there is much more to be discovered if you poke in the corners. Remember to check out our FAQ as well!

    As for the Writing Workshops, new joiners often wonder why we do things a bit differently on this site than on other writing sites. We emphasize reviewing as a critical writing skill. Training your eye by reviewing other people's work helps you improve your own writing even before you present it for others to see. Therefore, we ask members to review other people's writing before posting work of their own. The Writing Workshops on this site, therefore, are true workshops, not just bulletin boards for displaying your work. See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!

    Welcome here, usually hardcore writers don't stick around due to busy schedules but I hope you'd stay for a while...
    Anyhow, I hope you like it here, and don't let the bumble bees get to you.
