Quote LeftI just wanted to say that I have been a member of Poetrysoup now for about 2 years. I have received wonderful feedback from the members here, both in the way of constructive critism and praise. This site is a blessing as well as an inspiration and the members of this site are simply wonderful. It has been mostly through my active involvement with this site that I recently got the courage to put together a book of my poetry as well as inspirational writing which has just been published. I cannot thank all of you at Poetrysoup enough for this site. Quote Right
