Every Poet Forum Newbie Stretching Room A place for newcomers and those unfamiliar with the rigors of a poetry workshop to be placed on the rack and elongated. Err. No. I mean, a place to introduce oneself and possibly acquire some posting and critting sea legs. As always, 3 crits per posted poem applies. (If you're new to critique, this will help.)
General Poetry Poets and poetasters of the Internet, unite! If you're new to poetry and criticism, post here after testing the warmer waters of the Newbies Stretching Room first. And please read the New Posters' Orientation thread before you dive in.
C&C The next step for intermediate-level poets desiring constructive critical commentary. Please read and respect these groovy C&C guidelines.
NaPoWriMo 2022 Poetry in written form dates back to 2100 B.C. What better way to celebrate the tradition than by jotting down your feelings and thoughts each day during the month of April and - voila! - helping PFFA continue its annual celebration of National Poetry Writing Month! Read the guidelines, then join us in the insanity, beginning April 1!
Seven/Seven IX Because we can't get 2020 behind us soon enough. Be sure to read these helpful guidelines and hints, then jump on in and write seven poems in seven days, starting on the seventh day of the month. (You can find previous Seven/Seven forums here.)
Challenges If you feel the need to feed your megalomania by suggesting a challenge which will coerce everyone into writing in a specific form, on a specific topic, using a particularly loathsome phrase, or any such poetic pitfall, this is the place.
Spiritual Poems of praise, worshipful limericks, odes to enlightenment, stuff like that. If a higher power features as a main character, you may prefer this category.
Love/Erotic Poems If your poems tend to start with "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day, baby?" this is probably the place for you! Erotic poems are asked to remain erotic, not obscene
Watering Hole Win friends, influence people, have a beer and chat about whatever drifts across the transom of your mind, poetry-related or not. This is the forum for random nonsense.
Voyage of Discovery Did you just read William Carlos Williams for the first time? Seamus Heaney? Milton? This is the place to share your experiences of new poetry, discuss classical and modern works, trade anecdotes, recommend anthologies, and all that helpful stuff.
Gripes, Suggestions, and Claps on the Back Hopefully few of the former, some of (what's between former and latter?), and many of the latter. Here's where to suggest improvements, changes, policies, anything else of which you feel the need to unburden yourself.
Other Venues The Internet poetry world is complex and ever-expanding, with something for just about anyone. This is the place to discuss other venues and to post fair, unbiased reviews of your experiences in the barren, unhealthy lands beyond PFFA.
