I have recently joined the online writing platform, Write Out Loud and wondered if any of you, my friends, were already using this most excellent avenue for displaying and sharing your writing?
If you have not heard of this before, I would love to recommend joining. It’s free and it takes no time at all to become a member, develop your profile and create your WoL blog space which can be read by all members, share comments etc, just like your own WordPress or other blog.
Write Out Loud describes itself as a national hub for participation in poetry, encouraging everyone who writes poetry to share their words with others in friendly, welcoming open-floor read-around, open-mic events and on-line on the site. They support individual poets, poetry organisations and groups across the country, via a monthly newsletter and the website.
They champion performance poetry by providing a way in which poets can talk and listen to each other. They explain that their approach has captured imaginations and enthusiasm of many people through both the website and events. The site gets over two million hits a month. So, definitely worth joining!
Let me know if you are already there or if you plan to become a member. I’d love to know.
