I've just started to write poems but I need to get some feedback to help me improve my technique. I have had some good comments so far but was wondering where at HubPages I could get help on the creative side of writing?
I also was thinking about joining another website specifically for developing my poetry skills but If I post anything elsewhere then I will receive a penalty and my Hub score will be compromised.
Any helpful advice would be greatly appreciated.
Rich: what kind of poetry i.e. rhyming? prose?
I guess rhyming since that's what I've mostly been doing so far but would like to perhaps develop some good habits in general.
Any recommendations on where to go online or within HubPages or particular books to study?
Hi Rich: There's no easy way.
Get a good rhyming dictionary. Develop a great vocabulary.
Rhyming poetry is very difficult and time consuming.
The symmetry, timing, cadence, balance, subject, all must be there to keep one reading.
I'm a poet of sorts.
Here's one of mine. It's long...4 chapters of rhyme. Let me know what ya think...if you read it.
Poetry is more than rhyming, it has to have almost a musical timing to it so that when you read it aloud, there are not leftover syllables...after you write something, stop and read it outloud and make sure is sounds good. also there are different ways of rhyming for example you can rhyme the last word of every line...or every other line

was never known
it was too win
but never grown
get a book, and read up on some of the styles, they all vary to their own style.
If you visit other poetry Hubs and leave comments, you'll get comments in return.
However, you may be better to join a site which specialises in developing poets. Google "poetry websites" and you'll see there are quite a few!

I'm bored. Ok correction, I'm procrastinating. I randomly come on and off the forums and on this return visit I've seen SO many people questioning why their hubs aren't making money and/or getting traffic.So for as long...

I published my first hub and it was unpublished. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. I was denied by Google AdSense... What does it take to get approved and do i have what it takes?

I am based in the UK and such I would use British spellings for words eg I would spell "flavour" rather than "flavor" . When writing Hubs that are aimed largely for the US market, should I use US...

I'm not getting any comments on my Hubs. I'm hoping this doesn't mean that they aren't liked! Any advice on how to generate more comments or view of my hubs would be greatly appreciated. There are some amazing writers...
