Hi!

I'm thinking of starting something for poetry writers where we could post poetry and discuss it. I would like to get a feeling for who would enjoy having this options.

I've included options for everyone, because I know some of you just can't stand not clicking polls even when you have no interest in the topic at hand :D So please take this seriously (even if the options are a little funny) and vote appropriately.

Yes. There's a space for visual artists and sections for stories. Let the poets share, too. :)

My answer is completely contingent on whether or not dirty limericks count as poetry.

Well, it's not like poets can't post in the Gen. Art gallery or that people with Artists Alleys cant post poetry there. I was more wondering if there might be interest a thread or a forum or some platform through which to specifically share poetry and discuss it. If that makes sense?

I'll likely be more inclined to keep trying to write poetry in general if this happens. I did it a lot in highschool with my creative writing class and before that I got a pretty decent sized poem published in some collection of gradeschool kids poems. But, since then I have done very little and have always felt..awkward about it.

Welp, all of Dev's 'songs' were poetry I attempted to write. I think an idea like this is great!

I was wondering when you would decide to poke in.

Please note that we've taken down the commissions forums (people can request commissions in the General Artist Gallery again), and changed it over to the Ink Cupboard, which is meant for poetry, word-art, and critique.
