The Poetry Free-for-All is a non-stop online poetry workshop for beginners and experts alike. Critical commentary is expected, embraced, and all participants are expected to have the improvement of their craft as a primary goal.

Three important things to think about before you jump in:

  • Offer at least three critiques of others' work for each poem you post

  • Thank those who critique your work, even if they trash it - which can and will happen

  • Don't mess with the moderators, who work extremely hard to make this a constructive environment for those who wish to improve their writing
