Paid Critiques


Question: What is a poetry critique anyway?

Answer: A poetry critique is an analysis of a poem that discusses good things and not so good things about the poem.

Question: Why should you get your poems critiqued?

Answer: Critiques help identify areas of writing strengths as well as to uncover means for improving weaker areas.

Question: What does a poetry critique look like?
