Welcome to the OZpoet Message Board, the place where Australian poets can share their craft [or is it an art?]. This board functions mostly as an online workshop.

Please feel free to post one of your poems or to offer considered and helpful responses to the poems posted here. Alternatively, you might like to -

  • share news and events
  • comment on events or poetry
  • discuss issues and themes in current poetry practice.

Poems posted on the Message Board are eligible for selection for the OZpoet Treasury.

At present, OZpoet is administered by Gillian Savage. You will notice that the board is monitored. Irrelevant and inappropriate messages [e.g. get rich quick schemes] are deleted. Kindly remember that this is a public space which is accessed by people of all ages - keep your comments appropriate for the public domain.

If you would like to offer comments/feedback on the poems posted here, you will find some useful guidelines at the bottom of the page.

Finally, if you hate blinking ads on your screen refer to the bottom of the page for instructions on how to stop the blink.

1. The two-for-one rule
Please submit two high quality, detailed commentaries on the poems of other people for each poem of your own you submit to the board.

2. The useful rule
The feedback you give should be USEFUL. Useful feedback

  • is specific about the strengths and weaknesses of the poem
  • refers to technique as well as content, i.e. rhythm, rhyme, word choice, allusions, figures of speech, use of poetic devices
  • offers suggestions for improvement

3. The acknowledgement rule
Please respond to comments made on your work. You can expand, enlarge, defend or explain. This way dialogue and discussion can take place. To avoid cluttering the board please try to group your responses in a single message and avoid 'n/m' [no message] posts.

4. The kindness rule
Remember the subtle force of kindness and use it lavishly when you are offering comments. Meet the challenge of saying difficult things in gentle ways.

5. The truth rule
Tell the truth, it always helps. If a poem doesn't work for you, say so, and explain why it doesn't work, how it misses the mark. If you really loathe a poem, it may be more constructive to say nothing than to offer only negatives.

Want to stop blinking ads? Change your browser preferences as follows.

Internet Explorer
Go to Tools menu, click Internet Options.
Click the Advanced tab.
In the Multimedia area, clear the 'Play animations' box.

Left click on View, go down to Stop Animations and click.

Close your browser and open it again, and you should be blink free!

This stops only gif animations and you'll find that java applets and Flash animations still work. But as most of the nuisances seem to be gifs, I have found the Web [and this Message Board] a MUCH more pleasant place since I changed this preference.
