The Word Craft Poetry community is a place where we can learn and practice syllabic poetry and other forms of poetry. Please be respectful of your host and the other participants.

The Word Craft Poetry community has a zero-tolerance for harassment, bullying, stalking and other inappropriate behaviors. I reserve the right to remove comments, posts, and block any poet that behaves in that manner. Report any such behaviours to: tankatuesdaypoetry@gmail.com.

This community exists to help each other flourish and grow as poets. We all participate in the challenges for different reasons, but we all come to read and to write, and to know that our poetry has been read and appreciated. Construtive comments are necessary for our growth. Please be kind and support our poets.

The comments on the posts close in two weeks for spam prevention.

Now, have fun and write some syllabic poetry!
