I was just wondering what I could bring to the party here for our boys and girls in the Armed Services, and I hope this does not seem in any way presumptuous. I could offer a kind of poetry clinic for people on the site, obviously for nothing.

I teach creative writing and literary appreciation for a living normally to scholarship kids in a school.

They could submit a poem and I could suggest things like why not using a metaphor here or changing the rhythm there in a very-I hope-pleasant and unthreatening way just to polish up the final outcome.

It was just a thought as I was brushing my teeth.

This sort of feedback can be quite useful if you are young poet starting
out.

If you are steady under fire then please send me a poem or two that you feel needs tweaking and I'll take a look at it. Think of this as a kind of Kwikfit.

Please put your draft poem on this site and send me an email if you feel bold enough. I won't rewrite it, just try and provide some helpful ideas (I hope!)
