Poetry and Poets

How can we write about, recommend and review poetry, when it's so subjective? How can we learn more as readers, or educate those who don't consider themselves "poetry people?"

Hey Everyone,

Just joined this group. I am a poet with two published books of poetry. I am constantly writing poetry so I definitely consider myself one and oddly enough I just interviewed someone who didn't consider themselves one despite having wrote a book of poetry early on in their career. As for myself, I say if you write poetry religiously like I do or even if you've published one work but don't write it often you should be considered as a poet. 

This group sounds interesting, I've joined a poetry group on another site but it's not all that enlightening, hoping to find a good one with more solid contributors to it.

Was away from vacation but now I'm back and with a new post status/update on publication routes for my poetry chapbook. If you feel traditional publishing is the way to go, come over to the site and explain why. If you're a supporter of self-publishing, stop by as well. It's fine if you like to straggle both. Can't wait to hear from you and your thoughts about the art I've chosen as a bookcover. See below.
