Re: POTENTIAL DELETION OF WRITER'S BLOCK POETRY FORUMS

I can't do a bulk email because that would pull it a majority of non-poet people. Why don't you craft a letter of invitation and gather the mail list?

POTENTIAL DELETION OF WRITER'S BLOCK POETRY FORUMS

Comparing the current and very small number of people posting on the poetry forums to the more populous and active forum that once existed, it becomes immediately obvious that a devolution of one kind or another has taken place over the course of the past year, if not before. I do not know the reaso...

But we realized the much more beneficial aspect was the ability to see what our pitch, and therefore book, was lacking. After reworking everything, we have a story that not only generated editor interest, but also one ...
