    Hi, I would like to give a plug for the forum Member Archives. I really wish all of the members would create a page with links to their poems. If you have a website where all of your work is already consolidated, you might just add that link to your page. But, if you don't this is a great place to consolidate your body of work for the reading pleasure of the rest of us. There are times when I think of a poem that one of you wrote in the past and want to go back and read it but it is really hard to find. If you had a page on which you added links to your work, we all could enjoy access to
  2. OMG! Ok maybe I am just dense but it took a new member to show me the way! Thank you Jurit. The "topic tags" have purpose! Many of you do not have an archive page but wouldn't you still like a link to your body of work posted here? Just use the "topic tag". I didn't realize that if I simply put my name in the "topic tag" space below the Topic Title when posting, any other posts with my name in the "topic tags" would be linked.

  3. I know some of you occasionally scroll down to the reference section but naturally the primary focus here is the Member's Poetry which is as it should be. However, with the recent change of format at PMO, the reference section went through extensive "clean up" and a little reorganization. I am really pleased with how it has turned out. There is certainly more out there to research and I will add it when I find it. I am searching. adding, improving, clarifying all of the time. But I think most of whatever is out there about the craft of writing poetry has now been documented here. And I a
  4. Explore the Craft of Writing Poetry Explication and critique go hand in hand. Explication is the close reading and breakdown of the components of a particular poem. A critique hopefully is given after an explication is made and often takes the explication to the next level to express an opinion and/or give advice. We can learn a great deal about writing through explication. Critique helps another see the poem through a readers eyes. I include here some notes I think important to consider before giving a critique and an explication template that I originally got from another who I only kno
  5. "There are two men inside the artist, the poet and the craftsman. One is born a poet. One becomes a craftsman. . ." ~ ~ Emile Zola to C├ęzanne, 16 April, 1860 Poetry stirs the emotions as much by the manner of delivery as the message. The message comes from a poet's experiences, observations, imagination and most importantly, the poet's soul. The manner of delivery or craft comes from a poet's intellect and training. It is magic when soul and intellect work in harmony to touch the reader. Anyone can write a poem, the poet aspires to create the magic beyond the poem, something we call poe
