AFTER learning the basics of grammar. And, no, I'm not offering to give English lessons!

I do see that we have some potentially good writers posting their submissions, yet I must question some whose writings are, frankly, almost illiterate in the basics of good writing. And I wish to encourage all who wish to write to do so...

Passion is inherent as the basis for any writing, but passion alone does not make for good communication. Aidle..has made some excellent points in his/her posts, yet has been subjected to a diatribe of unwarranted vitriolic, in my opinion.

2/13/2010 6:21 PM
...execution of said theme. Admittedly, I am a long time English teacher, both of composition and literature, as well as a published author, and believe that spelling and grammar are vital components of communication.

At the risk of getting blasted here, I thought the purpose of a writing contest should be to promote good writing. Additionally the purpose of writing is communication, and in order to communicate one must be clear in one's theme and the

2/13/2010 11:04 AM
well said and wisely spoken

2/13/2010 10:52 AM
I think all poetry is beautiful, It takes many different forms as does music and art. Who are we to judge? not one poem is the same as is taste....

2/13/2010 9:45 AM
I am particularly impressed by the work of some really young people that are entered in this contest!

2/13/2010 8:49 AM
Thank you...I think, but I give readers more credit than you. Sure there's some spelling & grammatical errors but that will pass with practice. 100 years ago it was OK to use creative spelling. & as you say there's some really good poetry.

2/13/2010 8:34 AM
Anndrewart you should win but you probably wont because they wont get it. no offense to YOU people just arent that deep anymore.

2/13/2010 8:30 AM
in all fairness i see so much potential. good, really good poetry and lots of people could do better if they would use their spellchecker (IN their writing) or learn some phonics. I hate to see people settle for mediocrity.

2/13/2010 8:27 AM
yeh but also and no offense but to just say vote for me without saying read me sounds kinda desperate. no one addressed that.interesting. & before i get slammed for having an opinion i wasn't targeting anyone when i said if the shoe fits.

2/13/2010 8:22 AM
I see that here & there. A photo in the vocal contest has got quite a few votes. It's kind of a slam to the artisans who work hard at their creation. I agree A.Wild. Its nothing against the writer its the voter?

2/13/2010 8:11 AM
I dont profess to read minds but i DO read before voting unlike the 30+ who voted for a poem that had no content before it was withdrawn. RJ71, go back to your earliest comments for reference. If the shoe fits.

2/13/2010 6:36 AM
Great comment Rebecca, I definitrly get your point, you don't know how many times I run across people who Just know what you are thinking?

2/13/2010 3:11 AM
Im confused Aiydle...Who's not reading the poetry before voting?? I mean if you can actually SEE these people NOT reading...PLEASE let me IN on how you are able to pull THAT one off...that'd take some GREAT talent dear :D!!! Just wonderin

2/13/2010 12:02 AM
coincidently your one of the few i voted for. yeh & you know youre REALLY good when people shame you. its like their threatened by yer talent. I notice some insecure jerk goes & shames everyone as soon as they upload new media.

2/11/2010 5:48 PM
agreed Aiydlewild. i'd much rather someone vote for my work bc they like it. this shouldn't degrade into a popularity contest.
