Hello Newbie Poet

Postby VintagePoetess » Fri Jan 20, 2017 4:19 pm

Hello, I am new to the Poet's Grave forum! I have come to try and improve my work as I would like to become a published poet. I am afraid I have no formal training - I was homeschooled and we didn't delve into poetry much - so structure and iambic metre is still somewhat a mystery to me. However, I have read a variety of poets and I keen to learn more about poetry and improve. I look forward to sharing and working with people here. Thanks! Vintage x
