email from Kat

Kat is a poet and joined the group in the summer. Yesterday she sent me an email asking for some advice. Kat wants to know if it’s ok to read her latest poem to the group before she enters it into a competition in a monthly magazine.

Being honest my first reaction was relief that she wasn’t asking me for my personal feedback on her poem. I wrote back confirming that everyone is welcome to offer their work for honest feedback and criticism. I didn’t dare mention that a poem with so many expletives (I counted eight in the first verse) may not be suitable for a magazine that is based predominantly on providing patterns for knitting your own cardigan.
