It’s not wise to violate the rules until you know how to observe them.
-T. S. Eliot

Nothing you write, if you hope to be any good, will ever come out as you first hoped.
-Lilian Hellman

It is the function of art to renew our perception. What we are familiar with we cease to see. The writer shakes up the familiar scene, and as if by magic, we see a new meaning in it.
-Anais Nin

It is by sitting down to write every morning that one becomes a writer. Those who do not do this remain amateurs.
-Gerald Brenan

The goal of this community is to give poets a place to find critique for their work. You do not need to be a great poet to post, but you do need to be serious about wanting to improve. The group will be moderated, but with as hands-off a style as possible. There will be no restrictions on who may join, but if your posts are not poems, or if you do not comment on other's poems, you will be subject to removal at the moderator's discretion.
