A social site for poets in Sydney.
One of the objectives for sydneypoetry is to become a place to discuss poetry news, issues and events in Sydney. To that end one conclusion we've come to is that self-publishing our own poems (or publishing a link to poems we've self-published elsewhere) is probably not the best way to achieve that outcome. If everyone did this it could quickly become a self-publishing free-for-all.
Several people have now posted poems (and received a note like this), and these poems will be removed from the site this week. We would appreciate if you could remove the poem you have posted.
Please be assured this is not a comment about the merits of the poem. We will in future have a place to be published on sydneypoetry.com (ie selected for publication by an editor), but that is still a little way off. At that time we will be publishing our members' poetry – so keep your good stuff standing by.
One thing we do want to know is when our members have poems accepted for publication by journals, or are doing a reading somewhere.
