Cultivating Poetry and Poetic Criticism
Hi guys! I owe a few people here some comments and criticism, so apologies in advance. My computer freezes quite frequently, and when it's done so in the middle of an LJ response I get in a foul mood and need some time before I'm ready to write it again.|
That said, I need your help. I need your expertise and your assorted hobbies. I need you.
This community was founded on sharing the importance of research and criticism (especially the ability to give it). I think it's fair to say you're all here because you support this idea. But this is an aim no one person can achieve on his or her own. This is something I need help with - your help. Please, if you can spare even a moment to read this post in full, I'd be much obliged.
First and foremost, I need your input on the following ideas for future staples that would help emphasize research and critique. Tell me which ideas you like, which ones you don't, and which you feel need to be reworked a little. If you can think of others that would also be good, please please please inform.
( Possible Community StaplesCollapse )
Remember, if you can think of any other ideas, I'd love to hear them.
Next comes the most important part. Next comes me asking if any of you could take responsibility for some of these features, with their running times dependent on your schedules and opinions of their importance. I make this request to help strengthen this community as a whole. All who'd be willing to take responsibility of a community staple would, of course, be given mod status as well (to make it easier for you to do your exercises!).
So, please, I know it might sound like a lot, but even just responding will be of great benefit to me, and I'm certain this community could benefit from the experience and input of most everyone here. Furthermore, a weekly post may seem like a bit of a commitment, but not only do I appreciate the need for flexibility, I also know that a weekly post doesn't require as much effort as it might seem. If you have any time at your disposal, that would be wonderful.
I want this place to be strong. I want it to be able to serve its members effectively, and allow them in turn to grow and participate. And I really intend to put in what time and effort I can. But not only do I recognise this cannot be done by just one member, I also feel it's to the detriment of the community for only one member to be running everything.
That said, thanks for reading so far! Hope your evening is well, happy writing, and peace all!
