Born on May 16th 1996, a troubled childhood was the inspiration to start my poetry. From the time I was 11 years old, I have been writing poems as an escape from reality, and a way to get my contorted mind and thoughts on paper. As I type this, I am working on my first collection of poetry and plan to release it by the end of 2018. I tend to like free verse sort of work, but do like consistent rhyme schemes depending on the work. Outside of free verse poetry, you'll find me writing a lot of sonnets. Stay tuned for more. If you ever have a question about my poetry, or just want to chat, contact me here at anytime or feel free to send me an email at Sutherlandjm516@gmail.com. Thank you so kindly for your support.

Hello all,

I firstly just want to thank all of you for coming across my page. As stated in my biography here, I am currently working on a poetry collection I am entitling "Panic Attack." I should be posting some of the poetry on this site for feedback, and would love to get any feedback from the rest of you wonderful writers. Think of this blog post as a way you can comment and discuss suggestions you have for me based on my writing. You may also feel free to ask me any questions you might have! I am excited to begin my creative writing career, and am excited to meet all of you.

Sincerest Regards,

J. Michael Sutherland

Hi Michael, I will be happy to follow you and comment on your poetry on the individual poem pages. If I have suggestions for possibly improving your individual poems, I will send you SoupMail. In the meantime I hope you will or have already considered entering my new contest for you to be published in my anthology.

Thank you once again for your support, Line! I will definitely appreciate your help and value your criticism. In the meantime I did not see said contest but I think now that you have mentioned it, I will definitely enter your contest!

Nice to meet you J! I hope your collection comes together just the way you want. Just remember this is an amateur poetry site. So not all criticism will be constructive nor beneficial. You'll have to decide what's best for you personally :)

Hi FJ! Nice to meet you as well! I definitely understand the standing of this site as an amateur poetry site, but I hope I can get some feedback from some great writers nonetheless. I have definitely already come across wonderful writing and writers here. I do know it has to mostly be through me though, and I am already tweaking some of my own work based on previous thoughts I have had.

Michael - the bugz question below is not random, you are new here and every so often, Tommy (July) becomes new again too. But the love of bugz is a constant and we hope you will grow to love them too.

Tommy, start with something a little lighter, perhaps Slipknot's 'Duality'.

I listened. A bit like Nickelback on steroids. A little heavy for me

Cool to hear you're in to Killswitch! I really like "Always" but I have always been a sucker to "End of Heartache." It really rings in my heart.

Well, we are a family here Tommy. And look, Michael is a Killswitch Engage fan. I first discovered that band a couple of years ago with their song 'Always'.

Very random question! I like it! I can't say I particularly "luv" bugs, but they do intrigue me. Great subjects for poetry!
