|This Group is dedicated to all kinds of poetry.|
But please follow the rules. They are here to protect the group and ensure that we all get along.
Mature content is fine as long as it has the appropriate filter on it. Otherwise, it will be removed from the group and we will send a note to the author.
You can submit poetry by yourself, or suggest the work of other deviants. But never attempt to claim someone else's work as your own!
You will only be allowed to submit three deviations per week.
Membership is for everyone! So, invite, invite, invite! The more the merrier!
The "Featured" folder is for contest winners and those works we think deserve special recognition only! No exceptions.
The other folders can be submitted to freely.
There will be folders created specially for prompts and contests.
CRITIQUE FOLDER RULES:
Can be found in a Journal here: [link]
Please, respect the rules and have fun!
Now, get writing and submitting!
