Poetry comes in many different forms. Some poems are silly and childish. Others are deep and thoughtful. No matter what type of poetry
you write you can find out what other people think about your talents by publishing your poetry online. It’s difficult to hear people criticize your work, no matter what field you’re in, but if you’re serious about your poetry, and you want honest opinions, publish your work somewhere that allows critiquing of your work.
One place where you can publish your poetry for free is at www.poetworkshop.com You can read the poetry of others, get reviews for your own works, and even earn rewards while doing so. As people give you positive reviews you move up in ranks at the site, which is international. Don’t publish your works if you feel like you can’t handle harsh comments as some people can be very unkind. But, read through all the reviews on one poem before deciding if people like it. Just because one or two may be harsh doesn’t mean that many more won’t love the poetry.
