Hi Raymond, and welcome to the Sydney Poetry social site.
This is a social site built by the poets (and friends) of Sydney (and surrounds) for the poets (and friends) of Sydney (and surrounds).
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 to keep it clean and on-topic.
So others here know a bit more about your interest in poetry it'd be great if you introduced yourself with a few words in a post or the text box on your profile page (and add an image for your avatar too if you're in the mood).I hope you enjoy your time on the site and find it useful, and please let us know what you think.
