Re: Getting board error messages? Post them here.

I can no longer see many of the avatars on the board. I'm on a Mac, but I don't recall having this problem until more recently. Perhaps since our little blackout? I can see Agnes, but not Alan, for example. I can see River, and Ravi, but not Olson. Any suggestions on how I can fix this? I do not kn...

Re: Literary Terms

As a teacher, editor and critic of writing, and as a writer, I have found that a knowledge of literary devices and terms was useful (just as a knowledge of rhetorical devices is useful) for the reader of poetry and the writer as well, because it could enrich the reading and writing; however, I have ...

Re: Draft lost by time out

Were you clicking on "Save Draft" instead of "Submit"? If so, you can retrieve your draft as follows: open the thread in question, click on "POST REPLY", and you will note that there is an extra button, "Load Draft". After you click on that, you will note that...

Draft lost by time out

Hello, I just wrote a long, thoughtful, positive critique of your poem and when I hit submit the webpage had expired. I have tried to get it back but can't. The Save Draft option was on,I'll keep trying. Can anyone help me? This is unfortunate, but it is a limitation of the software. A year or so a...

Re: Prism Magazine Contest

Duotrope is an interesting resource for writers. Although it is designed as an online resource to help writers keep track of submissions, it seems to me that I have seen contests mentioned there among the descriptions of various publishers. Wild Poetry Forum is another poetry forum that is quite in...

Re: Members' Introductions

Agnes, thanks for pushing me into this. I thought about starting off with a little biographical tour of me, but until your "you first," thought I should wait and see if we had any takers here. But, there is fair, so here goes. In my almost three quarters of a century, I have been a teenage...

Ten Rules for Writers

Re: Quantity over quality? But it works

Thanks, Agnes, but remember, just between you and me (and if you tell anybody, I never said it) I'm a single-minded (but double brained of course) poet/fanatic. :smt119
