My post, today, is an announcement. There is at least one opening (maybe more) in The Poets’ Garage, an online workshop for children’s’poets, where I have been a member for nearly10 years. I have found it to be an invaluable resource for improving my poetry craft and knowledge. Check out our WEBSITE to get a better idea of who we are. We are seeking active members.
Here is the announcement from our leader:
Poets' Garage currently has an opening for membership. If you are already on our waiting list, you will receive an application shortly.
Poets' Garage is a children's poetry critique group which formed in 2005. We have our own private message board where we post and critique poetry.
The majority of our poetry is metrical but free verse and all forms are welcome. Our authors write poems for various ages from baby to young adult. We also will crit rhyming picture book text of up to 1000 words. Over the years, our members have sold countless poems and a number of rhyming picture books.
Members are to critique a minimum of TWO poems each month.
Members are to post a minimum of TWO poems for critique each quarter.
Members are expected to give about the same number of critiques as they receive.
If you think the Garage would be a good fit for you - we are looking for active members as opposed to members who may want to just do minimums - request an application from Bill at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you! Looking forward to seeing one or more of you in the Poet's Garage soon!
Many thanks to Penny Parker Klostermann for hosting!
