It's easy to critique the works of others and get your work critiqued. Just follow the steps below:

1) Post your first piece.

2) You must then critique the work of another member to post another piece yourself.

3) For each critique you give, you earn 1 credit that can be used to post another one of your writings.

4) You can build up credits to be used at another time by giving critiques to others.

TITLE: Channel Swimmer

This piece is written for a young woman friend who is leaving for University... I wanted to leave her with something that reflected her sense of adventure and courage in the face of obstacles, without preaching at her, without sounding like I'm older and wiser. Does the message come through? Is it too esoteric a connection of thoughts? Thanks for your help on this one!

You stand on the edge
waves lapping at your neoprene clad feet.
In your gut emotions wage war
provoked by whispers of darkness, sharks,
and endless miles of open water.

Yet, out there is the siren call of land.

Just offshore bobbing
in a liquid trail of moonlight
the boat waits for your signal.
You raise your hand
tightening the strap of your goggles
and step into the water.
