Need a platform to place my poems on!!!

Post by josephion »

Hi everyone, I have got inspirations from reading Shakespeare’s poetry and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle works and have some poems that I have written. There are many platforms on which I could place my poems but I want some suggestions from you people to help me know the places to present my poems.

Your moving "Ode to Hummus" and "Sonnet on Dr. Watson, DDS" are more than welcome here! Otherwise, not so much.

Tell us something.: Been a fluter, citternist, and uilleann piper; committed now to the way of the harp.

Oh, yeah: also a mod here, not a spammer. A matter of opinion, perhaps.

Tell us something.: I used to be a regular then I took up the bassoon. Bassoons don't have a lot of chiff. Not really, I have always been a drummer, and my C&F years were when I was a little tired of the drums. Now I'm back playing drums. I mist the C&F years, though.

So as a literary-ish person, I read this as: Hi everyone, I have these poems I just thought of that I am going to bestow upon the world, if only someone would tell me how to directly paste them onto the American Poetry Review's website.

Suggestion: search for writing workshop websites, join, post them there for commentary, read commentary with a non-defensive eye, revise, revise, revise, research poetry journals, submit, wait, wait, wait, submit elsewhere after rejection, rinse, repeat.

You could skip the workshopping, but I don't recommend it.

Yes, as you said, there are many places on the net that can do justice to your work and help you to publicize your poetry but recently one of my friends has found a source that not only makes your work known but the members there add a touch of creativity to it. The community members combine the poems with audio, music, motion graphics and other elements to make your poem a visual poem. It is a different thing and I hope that you would love that.

Tell us something.: Well, I'm not registering; I've been a member since around 2000 or so. But I've been away for a long time. I seem to remember this forum being something about post structuralism. And aliens who are coming to feed us special food. And, you know, Irish music or something like that.

Why, yes, I would love a different thing, as a matter of fact! How thoughtful. How ever did you know?
