Nominate features!

Post by Ros » Fri Dec 20, 2013 6:11 pm

Add your feature nominations here - we'll leave this thread here and clear it down occasionally - just add new suggestions at the end. Features will then appear in our new Current Features forum under the 'Features' section before being moved after a couple of weeks to the archive (not visible to non-registered), so that people can submit them to magazines.

Let's get this party started!

Geoffs Green Tomatoes - its funny, it's sharp in its observation, it's slightly naughty and it's very well written with great word selection. For canoodle alone it's worth a mention

Seconders please?

I will also back the Green Tomatoes, as Elph said it is slightly naughty, it raised a smile for me AND there is that lovely biochemical detail...

That is it then...the people have spoken. Three strikes and you're in. I will now ask the author...

Hi Seth,

Thanks for the norm. But it is a translation. Is it eligible to be nominated?

Glad it made you feel happy.

Hello, Lake

Yes, definitely translations can be nominated..though then perhaps the original should be named? Translating poems = great art.

Top poem all round but that line - 'mouthing crumbs of memory' will stay with me for a long time.

I see this forum hasn't been used in a while so I'm not sure if it is still up and running or not.

If It is I'd like to nominate SteverR's Transition...I just like it.

Ah come on lads and lasses.

We need to start nominating now and then, gee, give some of the newer poets something to aim for.

P.S. I just noticed that I'm now a Persistent Poster. Reach for the sky's what I say!

I'll second that. I missed it at the time, but I like it too.
