Can I begin an article with a poem about topic? If not, where is the best place to put the poem? I will use keywords in title of poem and photo next to poem. I don't have a good feeling about this layout. Suggestions please.
Just curious... is it an original poem or a quote?
I don't see any reason why you wouldn't be able to begin a hub with a poem... If your hub is going to be mostly non-creative writing, you'll want to put it in whatever topical category it goes in and it will be rated on the normal ratings... if it is mostly creative writing listed it as so and it will be rated on the creative writing rubric.
Personally, I think poems and quotes make great additions to non-creative hubs and can often add substance.
Simey gave me a great suggestion with one of my hubs. He suggested that I add more informational text so that it's more about the topic and place the poem in a right aligned text box as a feature. It worked out pretty well for my article about red flags in unhealthy relationships. I tried it with others as well. You just have to make sure you have enough content and other capsules to fill the hub and avoid white space. WryLilt turned me on to getting rid of white space. That was awesome advice from her.
I think I cant post the link here, but it's one of the favorite things Ive written, maybe cause part of it was written by amazing ppl. It's called Quoting the Giants I think if you want to click on the link for blogspot on my page. It doesn't seem to me like it is un-post-worthy, but then I always think that. lol
It is an original poem with-non fiction article. The article is about 850 words long with the poem a tribute. Thanks.

I'm wondering if creative writing - poetry and personal narratives - is appropriate content for a hub?

I'm curious as to whether there has been a decrease in hubbers using the hub hopper to rate hubs. I just have a feeling there is because my hub scores haven't been fluctuating as much (which is fine with me). Overall, I'm wondering if there's been a bit of a slow down in hub QAP due to...

Hi everyone! How are you?I haven't published a new hub in a long, long time, so I thought maybe now would be a good idea, but, HubPages has changed! Wow! Anyway,I'm not really looking to improve my hub, but am instead looking to ensure my hub stays out of the rejection pile. ...

I have re-worked this hub several times; I've changed the title more than twice. There is apparently too much competition for this topic.I did a Google search for the subject very generally, and again using some specific words from my title. Guess what? The article appears exactly...
