Do you think the benefits would be more financial or more of just a freedom for poetry outlet? You do wonder how long it would take to fill up but then I personally think of all the poems and writings I have alone just sitting that could be at least out there and that makes me think one way but what if I didn't when I had a chance to go in on the ground floor and miss a good thing. There are all sorts of HP members participating and pitching in, even our Audrey is helping legally, others helping to bring it altogether so it seems it is off to a promising start. What do you think?
sort by best latest
It sure would be nice I know as a poet to be able to put all my energy into poetry at a site where it is appreciated whether it is financially profitable or not.
Thanks for your response!
Thanks Annsalo, you make a lot of sense and I know I have taken down many I thought were very good and it is almost humiliating sometimes.
It is a couple weeks from being ready but has had such great interest & so many people from HP volunteering their abilities to pull it together, I just think the spirit & speed of it all is mind blowing really. They have volunteer editors. No
Sounds like it is off to a lightening speed! It will be another great medium for creative writers to write until their heart's content. Sorry about the typis in my previous comment. My fingers are too big for this phobe LOL
NP. What I didn't get to finish saying there was members will probably want to read others but not required to I am sure and there are editor volunteers. Anyway you can type in the name at FB and be real nosy at what is happening and being said!
Hahaha okay, I will be nosy. Will each poet/writer have their on page or will it be all mixed together, do you know? I saw those who are volunteering to be editors. As long as the site remains a positive one and never negative towards other sites.
Well the head is John, I don't see him being anyway like that, do you?As poets we are all pretty frustrated here but we haven't left & I have not heard anyone say they are. Just taking what is not appreciated here to a new place & all can be
No, I sure don't. Glad no one is leaving HP. ad they all feel like family to me here. Oddly enough my poems receive views in the thousands but maybe because they are non-fiction. My first grandson poem gas over 5,000, so I guess I am not frustrated
How about over 56,000 views? Views has nothing to do with it knowing how very many views John must get on his being one if not best here now. I mostly write about true life too. Guess I am not the best to explain it, maybe someone else will.
Oh, was it a poem or the fat faces one. He said before that he gets a couple of hundred views. It is great to be read more and get to know more writers, so that is the best purpose for sure.
Pretty sure it was my Paperback Novel one, was in my book but one I had here a long time. The reason my poetry (back then anyway) was so long was I gave them the 750 words! lol I have always gone by rules as closely as possible.
Yes, I try to make mine long, because if I didn't it wouldn't get published LOL, but I may have not published it under Poetry topic. The more writers' sites and writing communities one participates in and can be active in the better for sure!
Yes, if you can find an agent, otherwise you may as well try a good opportunity and I don't know these other places but I have always loved Jodah's poetry so with him being a poet and that good. I would probably go with him.
