Is the poetry forum/forums really here for the purpose of HubPages members to discuss poetry writing techniques and the poetry of famous poets ?
I ask because when I first came here I thought it was for posting poetry; then realised it was probably not what it was for. Other people may be led into thinking likewise by older posts.
I eventually came to realise that although HubPages lets people write Hubs about whatever they like within the rules; poetry is not really the sort of thing HubPages are meant to be about.
This is not a critical comment it is something I have pondered on - the exsistence of this forum can be a bit confusing to newcomers and I think it would be good if there were some sort of clarification for when people 'land here'.
If it sounds like a silly question please ignore me, I am still on my learning curve here - and (knowing me) I will be for some time.
I seem to do alright with my poetry. I rarely visit this thread though. You just need to find your own voice. Manlypoetryman does well too.
Not sure of its real purpose ,but I cruise to read an learn from others more gifted
