If any beginners want help with poetry...

Postby Ben_Poet » Sun Oct 09, 2011 2:21 pm

If any beginners want help with poetry, I would be glad to look over your poem and give tips and feedback before you post it. I already am a part of a buddy group, but I would like to be able to help any beginner level poets improve their art as well. Let me know if you are interested!

Blessings,

Ben

Which blend into a work of art,
They enter in your garden
And cultivate the heart.

Ben, I am a beginning poet. I would love your feedback. I have posted a few poems in the critique circle but I've found they don't get critiqued. I figure people aren't doing much critique circle critiquing right now or my work is so bad they don't even know what to say. :lol: Anyway, I just dabbled in poetic prose for the first time with two pieces I wrote as well as more traditional poetry. Outside of Faithwriters I don't have any feedback concerning my poetry. Anything you could offer would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Marcella Franseen

Marcella,

I would be glad to give you feedback! Just send me a PM with your poem when you are ready, or e-mail me at bgraber (at) neo (dot) rr (dot) com.

I used to provide feedback at the Critique Circle, but I haven't been there in at least a year. :) I would be more than happy to give feedback to anyone who would like some, though!

Ben,

I'm a newbie and I'm entering my first challenge. It is a children's devotional story (a poem of sorts). I'm not sure how to send it to you, so please let me know.

Carol

Ben, if you are still interested in doing this here are the links to five of my poems. If five is too greedy, I apologize and accept whatever is good and fair.

WAKE UP AND DREAM

GRAB THE BILLY

BENEATH THE CROSS

AN ANGEL'S KISS

THE SHADOW OF HIS CROSS

It does look greedy so I apologize; just choose which one you'd like to critique.

Heaps of blessings for your time and effort, Graham.
May we all get eyes to see and ears to hear,
A Revelation of His Word, crystal clear.
Admitting our need to be drawn in,
Less of self, more of Him.

My prayer for us all.
God bless us with the Revelation of His Word, Graham

Hello Ben_Poet,

Please disregard the reply above from Mrs.Cris...that's me! I"m not sure what I was doing when I signed into the boards and created another username, but this one is my original. I apologize.

I do have a new poem that I'd love your critique and input on for the Challenge. I have been writing poems for my own pleasure for about a year or so...and dream of moving up a notch or two sometime in my lifetime and publish a book, childrens stories, poems. I've been exploring it all and it seems I lean more to poems and short stories. I am a mother with 4 children so pretty busy. When I do get to write, it is a delight! I created a blog which is noted on my profile with some of leisure writings of prose and poems. Others are simple journal entries.

I hope to hear from you. Thank you.

Cris Ramirez :thankssign
