    ^I wouldn't consider yourself "new," you probably just didn't find out who were a poet :thumb:

    A very helpful hint is to read poetry. Look some up, or go to a library or something and browse around. Poetry to me is basically writing out your emotions, but without restriction. (I'm still learning most of the time)

    Another thing, since you say league, is check out the Poet Tree subforum, browse around. If you like, maybe sign in and get to crackin on writing poetry. Welcome!

    -Much Love

    helpful advice..

    don't take advice on improving your writing from anybody here.

    get a real tutorial from melic-review or somewhere.

    i think they give one. i'm not sure.

    fuck you, i'm not checking.
