Why no separate section for poetry?

    I have seen incredible numbers of poems on this board since i came here.

    The Renga challenge, started by littletoe is an outstanding one at present.

    There is a topic for humor, and for adult.

    I think poetry is so obviously important to many on this board it should have its own topic section.

    I could see that. Poetry, and a section for videos.

    I would like to see a seperate poetry section as well.

    I have a collection of ex-JW poetry on my hard disk.. maybe we could create a sort of anthology together.

    A few years ago, I visited Bethel, and they were just planning to have a new painting on the wall. Of course, it had to be 'approved' of first... Plato's Totalitarian State Art Censure :)

    We can do better than that!

    I'd love to see such a section here too. I think LittleToe once created a thread, asking why a relative few seem to respond to poetry threads. As a writer of quite a few of them I've wondered that too. I guess it's just not everyone's cup of tea.

    Maybe because no one likes it, or at least not too many.

    Does Watchtower history in haiku count?

    I would love a poetry section here.

    Pretty please?

    Yes, I too wrote much poetry about the JWs when I left the lie, and for a few years after. Maybe I should get a site together, unless we could get a spot here, and that would be much cooler. Simon?

    Blogging, journaling, writing exposes, and poetry are all wonderful ways to deal with a dysfunctional relationship. I would love to see a section of the site for CREATIVE WRITING itself.
