Welcome to Poem Online.
Poem Online is a community of poets helping each other to hone their craft. Have you ever wondered what others may think of your poetry, or if you need to learn to be a better writer?
If you have then this is the place for you.
Poem Online is now a large community of poets and is more than willing to read and comment on your work. We have been online since 1998 with always the same motto, "Bringing poets together."
On the Poetry Forums,
We encourage peer to peer critique. Challenging the poet not to only write poetry, but to offer suggestions to other poets to help them improve as well. We expect poets to have a thick skin and not to take it personal if they are unhappy with a critque from another member. The goal is to get honest feedback from other poets to help each member improve as a writer. At the same time we encourage poets to critique the poem and not criticize the poet personally. Poets here are from all over the world with many different backgrounds, We encourage poets to keep an open mind when reading poetry from members that do not share the same values or cultural background.
On the Poetry Blogs,
We encourage members to post poems they consider to be finished. If you are wanting critique of your poem you should post to the poetry forums.
