Hello Michelle, and a very warm welcome to Sydney Poetry.

This is a social site built by the poets (and friends) of Sydney (and surrounds) for the poets (and friends) of Sydney (and surrounds).

You can:

This being a social site the more we all do here the more interesting it becomes for everyone.

While there's no editor deciding what gets published there is just a bit of post facto moderation (please do read) to keep it clean and on-topic.

I hope you enjoy your time on the site and find it useful.

Best wishes,

Adrian
