> 0. This subreddit is for Original Content only. Please use our sister sub /r/Poetry for regular poetry content.
Please provide feedback to users that have a Feedback Request. Be courteous and respectful, but don't be afraid to give harsh critique. Remember that the author isn't always the narrator. After giving feedback, ask the author to return the favor!
To receive feedback, you must provide 2 pieces of feedback you've given recently (within last 2 months). Please link to these in the body of your post. Links should be unique to each submission (don't re-use links). The feedback should be a genuine effort to help (high-effort) improve the poem. Here is some More Info on high-effort feedback. Low-effort feedback will be removed at the mods' discretion.
If you want to share a poem without first providing others feedback, please use the dedicated Sharethreads.
Do not use URL shorteners. Do not post blogspam.
Audio, video, and image poems are allowed; however, all prior rules must be followed. Further, the text of the piece must be included in the post body here.
