Pet Peeve If anyone, ever sees a spelling or grammar error in my poetry or has an idea how to improve my poem, I would really appreciate hearing about it. But of course, the point must be made in a construction manner. To me this is a learning process. For example, someone suggested to me recently, that I am using "!" too much in my poems, that I should drop the "I's" and my poetry will flow better, trying to do that, and it is very true, the flow is better..

Entering Contest Competitions I like to enter and sponsor contests for the learning experience. When I place, in the contest, I am very pleased, but the true reward is in creating something beautiful for self, and to share. I have seen myself, growing as a poet, because of this site and its wonderful members. And I truly appreciate the challenge of the contests, making us try perhaps a form, we would never have thought we could master.

Poll Question: Featured Poetic Forms... Yes, I think featuring a certain, form of poetry weekly, would be a good learning experience for everyone on the site.

Character limit I agree, recently, I posted a Sestina, which is a very long form, and I had to keep editing it so it would fit the 2500 word limit.. If you are going to allow long forms, we should have the space available to write it, properly. Of course, there has to be some limitations, or some would write forever..

Hello need a little help The best way to receive comments, is to give comments, make yourself part of the community. Do not just depend on posting and being viewed, there are just too many poems posted daily, Yours will just get lost in the soup, within hours. Sad but true. Entering contests is another good way of getting exposure. For example, I presently have a contest, called Breathtaking Love, in progress, you could enter something, but be fast, only 5 spaces left.. Whaaaaa?

Have fun and keep PoetrySoup a haven. I think the Poetry Soup is great and is growing better all the time. But my question to you Team Soup is this, you have a list of rules and regultions, yet when poets break those rules, you let them remain on the soup, to just do it again and again, I am talking about hate blogs and hate poems and comments, why are you allowing this to continue, you say Be Kind and Keep Poetrysoup a haven~~

Exposure keeps you writing! If you comment on other poets, it will bring them to your poetry, your poetry will get read, otherwise, you write and your poetry is lost in the maze of poems, lost in poetry cyber space, so comment when you can, I know it takes time, but you will see the results~~

About my Poems Rainbow, you need to really check when posting a poem that you click on the correct form, check, check, check, it moves sometimes, and of course the wrong form entered in a contest will result in NA
