:bulletred: Poetry only.
:bulletblack: One deviation per folder per week.
:bulletred: With the exception of To-be-Critiqued which is just one per month.

:bulletblack: Please, oh please, put your things in the right place. The folders have a description if you are unsure.
:bulletred: Be civil. This is a rule, not a guideline. If it is brought to my attention that someone is being mean or inappropriate, I will not hesitate to remove you from this group.

It is simply as simple as that.

ONE: A good deed

This small but very cool group reached out to us with a really friendly message the other day, asking if we could mention their existence to you all, so I wanted to do that for them.  Check them out! :D

TWO: Housekeeping for our group

a) DON'T SUBMIT TO FEATURED.  Featured is a folder for poems we choose to feature.  We get SO MANY requests for the featured folder that it's just easier for us to dismiss them without even taking the extra time to reply and explain.  THANK YOU for understanding!  Nothing personal!!! :D

b) I've MOSTLY been keeping up with the to-be-critiqued folder, so for the ones waiting my attention at the moment, please remain patient, and I promise to reply ASAP.

c) Have ideas to grow this group or in some way make it more fun?  Reply to this journal and let us know!

d) Got a fun prompt idea?  Let us know by replying.  No guarantees we'll pick yours, but we'd definitely love to hear some good suggestions!

e) Message me (Sean/angelenroute) anytime for poetry- or prose-writing help of any kind.  I'm a professional proofreader, copy-editor, and writer, and I'm always happy to assist my fellow writers!

THREE: A self-promotion from one of the mods

Shameless self-promotion from me (Sean).  My second book is out now, and available on Amazon.  Check it out! :)…

Thanks all!  And thank you for sharing your poetry with the group!

I think this group is great. It's a wonderful place to get your work noticed in. I love it, and I don't think my poems would have gotten any views if it weren't for this group.

Aww, what a nice thing to say, but keep on getting your work out there.  Responding to other people's poems from the group is a great way to get more people commenting on your work too. :)

This will happen, although try to do exercises now and then to keep in practice, just for your own sake...and maybe for your own sanity too haha. -Sean

  I had a poem that I was considering submitting here, of course I don't know if it will even be excepted, but I still want try. The only problem is I don't know what folder it would fit into. If anyone with an ideas could reply to this that would be great. 

Here is the link to the poem…

Well, it could be 1) Spiritual and Religious, 2) Nature, or 3) All the Rest.  Maybe we should also have a folder called Philosophical Musings for poems like this.  Will think on that.  In the mean time, I'd suggest one of those three. :) (And it will be accepted.)
