I love poetry and some times even try my bloody hand at killing peotry. I enjoy reciting the free as well as well composed verses. Romantics as well as modern poets are interesting to me. I would love to share and learn from others by using my imagination to decompose the meanings units of the poems.

I am at present following a course in creative writing at Newcastle University. I have been writing poetry seriously for about two years. I have taken part in a number of readings.
By participating I hope to extend the range of my poetry. The subject matter for this course seemed intriguing.
At present, until I find my feet, I am not interested in course organisation
fledgling poet. chasing artistic expression, that shadowy creature i keep catching out of the corner of my eye.
I've recently rediscovered poetry, and want to improve my appreciation of it as well as learn how to write poetry. I'm looking forward to this course giving my pursuits some structure. I was an english major in college, but got my master's in social work. I'm starting a new job this week (running a group home for adolescent girls) so I won't have a lot of extra time, but my commitment here is a priority. I'm also looking forward to sharing poetry with the kids I'll be serving.
I am a writer/poet/mentor my publications include 'Sick of Ape' and 'Domestic Cherry'. I won the 2011 Battered Moons Poetry Competition and was placed 2nd in the 'Poets Meet Painters' competition 2011.

It's an interesting idea in deconstruction and reconstruction.
I hope to add something to my poetry.
I can help if needed.
Recent graduate of Texas Christian University w/ BA in Writing, Film-TV-Digital Media. Now I'm freelance writing (for food, water, shelter) and working on fiction, poetry, essays, and screenplays that will hopefully make me rich and famous. (Ha!) Excited to develop a community of other poets/readers, since it's been tough post-college to find like-minded individuals.
I love comedy, pop culture, cats, and books. I strive to write things that make people laugh and think. Especially about pop culture and cats.

Poetry is one of my main passions. Writing it and advocating for it. I also love learning and I miss having an environment where I can engage with others and be exposed to things (ideas, poems, etc) that I probably wouldn't find on my own.
I'm really excited about this course and this website. I'm amazed that it exists and that I can participate.
I'm also the founder of an online poetry community/annual festival (poetrystock.com) that I'm trying to spread the word about.
Hi, I'm Erica. I like old dresses and villanelles.
I started writing poems in a Lisa Frank notebook. I was 14.
Like many teen girls, I wrote poems not because I cared about poetry. On the contrary: I didn't care one fig about poetry. It was a vent, emotional gratification, a place to hide my ever-growing teen longing.
Later I began to read poems by authors ranging from Shel Silverstein to John Donne. I grew red-faced, embarrassed by the emotional urgency of my poems.
The bunny ballerina notebook went in a drawer; for many years it did not come out.
In my perceived need for sophistication, I took the pen back up in college. For a while it was all cloves and Ginsberg and Moleskine notebooks. I was writing poems, but again for the wrong reasons. I was writing to prove I could, to get a stamp of approval from a professor. To be in on something, whether it was blank verse or Dadaism. To get someone to read me as well-read, savvy, "cool"--oh how I hungered for it--when I felt more adrift than ever. In short, I was insufferable.
Now I write to navigate the space in between: trying to chart a place of emotional honesty, using whatever tools I can find. This class seems like a great way to break free of one's comfort zone, to try new things, to figure out what works and what doesn't.
I love P2PU. I work here and help people out. Ask me anything at help.p2pu.org.
I'd love to participate.
I find poetry is most accessible to me when I hear it read aloud. I find it least accessible, if not petrifying, if I'm promted to write it. But manipulating the words of others could be a great "gateway" experience for me!
