- From a satisfied customer: “The feedback was detailed and insightful. This is a great service for anybody who genuinely wants to improve their poetry by means of response to discussion. A poem is never perfect, but this feedback definitely sends you in the right direction. Will definitely use the service again!” ~David M.
You can submit your poem(s) and have each one personally critiqued by professional poets to ensure that your poetry gets the attention it deserves. Or you can submit a poetry chapbook or book to get it polished for publication.
The poetry critique service will give you an opportunity to see how to improve your works and apply what you learn to your other poems. You will receive a formal report on each poem you submit. Turnaround is quick, depending on the number of poems you submit for critique at a time. Poem(s) critiques are usually completed in approximately 5-7 business days depending on the number of poems sent for critique. Please note: chapbook or book critiques will take additional days for thorough consideration and critiques. You may email or mail your poems for critique.
Please note your poem(s) will be critiqued with comments and suggestions. If we see a typo, wrong word use, etc we may also point that out. If a word, line, form is confusing to the reader that may be pointed out as well. If you think your poem(s) are great as they are then we suggest you don’t submit them for a critique.
