Dear poets,

A new year brings new changes. Not only are we on our own website, but I’ve reconfigured how the system works so that we can take advantage of more features. While I don’t want to bore you with the specifics, I do want to share one of the more interesting additions.

Discussion Boards

We have added discussion boards (i.e. forums) to the site! This means that, aside from commenting on each other’s posts, you can also create threads to share your favorite poets, ask for writing feedback, or talk about off-topic things such as the best recipe for streak-free window cleaner. Obviously, moderators will be monitoring these and reserve the right to limit privileges and ban participants for any reason. But we’ve also been an ideal online community, so I’m a lot less worried than I am excited to learn more about the poets I’ve been writing with for the past four years.

Technical Issues

As I hinted at, I’ve changed a lot of things beneath the surface, so if you see any errors, let me know. Click here to go to the contact page and send me your issues. Try to describe what was happening so that I can troubleshoot the problem. And I will do my best to get back to you within a couple weekdays. Currently, I’m the only one who understands the code that I’ve written for this thing, but I’ll be sharing that knowledge with other members of Workhorse and Accents Publishing.

Aside from that, thank you so much for signing up, and I can’t wait to see some poetry!

Sincerely,

Bronson O’Quinn
