Hi All,
I'm very pleased to have found this online writing community!  I recently completed an MFA and sorely miss the constructive exchange among peers. 
I've been a teacher for about 30 years and have returned to writing, primarily focusing on poetry. I look forward to exchanging ideas and writing.

Nice to meet you, Dems!

You’ve just become part of a wonderful writing community.  Please take a moment to read the guidelines for forum etiquette -,7415.0.html

Now, go have fun exploring the site!   You'll find Blue stickies (with the push-pin icons) at the top of each board.  Read these.  They’ll help you find your way around and acquaint you with the local customs.   

It’s considered good manners to critique a few pieces in Review My Work or Review My Poetry before asking for reviews yourself.  You’re more likely to receive helpful feedback after you’ve contributed a bit.

Consider entering any open flash fiction or poetry contests.  They’re fun and anonymous. 

And, If you ever get stuck in one of the dark, winding tunnels or have a question  feel free to pm a moderator – we’re the ones with blue stars over our heads.

Most of all, enjoy hanging out with the writers on MWC   :)

Hello Dems, with your interest in poetry, I believe you soon feel right at home here. We have a very active poetry section.
