Are You Content with Write Out Loud's Content?
Write Out Loud has a long tradition of bringing more people to poetry through offering a superb selection of resources, information exchange and platform for on-line publishing, reading and discussion. Every day we look in great detail at the wealth of material produced by our readers and contributors as well as the wider world of poetry. We do our very best to offer a broad range of news and features articles here on Write Out Loud, but I am always open to suggestion and guidance from you about just what makes up our content on these pages.
Who and what would you like to see featured on the pages of Write Out Loud? What is your poetry question or idea, what would you like to say and read, and what areas are there for us all to discover? From celebrity interviews and big gig reviews to grass-roots features about resources in our communities and daily life, if you have or are looking for a poetry story then let me know and we can feature it, and perhaps even invite you to contribute.
What I am really interested in are the stories that matter to you, and not just the stories that you think will probably suit us and might appeal to lots of other people. You can leave comments on the discussion thread below with your suggestions, or you can email me in total confidence, even anonymously, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Perhaps you are someone with a lot to say, or perhaps you are someone who isn’t often heard? The internet gives anyone with access to it the potential to make their feelings known or to voice their ideas without the need to battle a throng or fear prejudice, and on Write Out Loud we want to hear from everyone be they punk, pan-sexual, pensioner or procrastinator. What do you really think about poetry? Whose opinion would you actually like to hear? What is missing from our site?
Maybe you would even like to try your hand at writing an article of your own for our News & Features pages? If this appeals to the writer in you just let me know! Anyone reading this could end up with their work being published right here. Would that be a useful or interesting writing credit to claim? If you have an idea for an article and fancy having a stab yourself I would love to hear from you, I will offer you some very simple guidelines and who knows, you may end up as a regular contributor.
This is one of those times when “Anyone” really does mean you. Go for it.
