The review board for all poetry and essays - quite simply, whatever isn'tfanfiction.
Use this board to review the poetry and essays posted. As usual, keep it polite. Our goal here is to allow authors to simply post their stories without having to deal with copious author's notes at the bottom of the page. This way, they can simply reply to reviews.
With that comes a few restrictions: please, no flaming. Be critical, yes; examine the story, yes. But do not give what is sometimes called "destructive criticism". If there is something that you really don't like, by all means say so, but do it in a way that it will be constructive and gain the story something. Don't take out personal issues with another member on this board.
If you liked something, say so! Authors, please feel welcome to reply to reviews here, but the same applies to you: be polite.
No bad language from either side; your post will be deleted and you will be warned. Keep up with the general rules and we'll get along fine. If posts get too bad, they will be deleted, so keep that in mind.
Reviewers, feel free to leave an email address. That way, another reviewer can contact you for some reason. We ask that you do not reply to another review in these threads; it just gets confusing. That is the author's privilege, not the reviewers. Quoting is fine, but don't post here just to reply to another review.
