Thanks for your reply. I've been writing for most of my 33 years, but I have always gone the solitary road. I admire poets and writers who can warm their creative hands at the fires of others. Perhaps the Internet is the coffee house of the future, eh?
I welcome the 'poet as rebel' role...Rimbaud, Burroughs, etc... I want a movement--something tangible--in my lifetime.
I hope there is a future for us. I stumbled across these forums tonight, and was delighted with what I saw. I work at a gaming company, so I know all about the potential of online communities. I will visit often, if only to reassure myself that there are others out there writing...
Thanks for visiting my site too. I went online and found some pics of my favorite writers, and had a very talented web artist at work mold them into a nice montage.
Feel free to post a link to Passions in Poetry in my forum. I'd like to bring others into the fold.
