  • Hi there!

    ... Like I anticipated, I unfortunately had an extremely busy April and if there are review requests and RP/SB/Duo posts that I owe feel free to reply to this so I can plan out what I need to write in the next few weeks.

    As a brief life update, I am finishing my Master's of Education program, (which includes night classes) finishing my student teaching (which includes me moving to a new school site for the last two months), and moving into a new house next weekend.

    I hope to be more active than being a lurker since I'm tired by the time I go online xD But anyway, excited for the upcoming events on YWS!

    Ley Oooh! Very proud of you, Masters are challenging! You got this <3

    The "Contact Mods" button currently is not working as intended, so messages sent via "Contact Mods" are not coming through for the time-being.

    If you see something you'd like to report, you are encouraged to send a PM to an Active Moderator from our Junior Moderator, Global Moderator, or Administrator team.

    Things you may want to report include... Review Spam, Possible AI Reviews, Harassment, or if any user is making you feel threatened or uncomfortable. Responding to these reports can sometimes take a little time as our moderators come to a consensus on what ought to be done; but we always take reports seriously and try to let the reporter know that their report has been handled when we can. More about this process and how to report can be found here .

    Thank you!

    Hey friends! We are about half way through april- which means we are also halfway through the Spoken Word/Visual Poetry Contest! As we get closer towards the end of the month, now is the time to continue working on your amazing poems and getting ready to submit them to the contest thread. The thread is open all month for submissions. I am definitely getting pretty close to submitting some of my own poems as well and I can’t wait to see all of yours!

    I wanted to post some #SpokenWord2024 tips to help you get started with creating visual and spoken word poetry!

    I found this video to be really informative and helpful in learning some different forms of visual poetry. If you are looking for some new methods to experiment, I definitely recommend taking a peek at that.

    And if you are looking for some inspiration to write and record spoken word poems, I recommend checking out the Button Poetry Youtube channel. I do not have the words to express how much I love this organization. So many of their poems have touched me deeply and are really the reason I got into slam poems and spoken word poemns in the first place.

    I wanted to take a moment to say that I am blown away by all of the incrediblke NaPo poems I have been able to read so far this month! I have also seen some incredible visual poetry published, that I wanted to take some time to acknowledge and shoutout!

    Something vain & something beautiful by @herbalhour

    City skyline by @Spearmint

    Stairs by @LuminescentAnt

    And so many more! I encourage all of you to submit your amazing poems to the contest!! If anyone has any questions (or wants to collab with me on a poem) don't hesitate to reach out!!

  • Hello there :) I hope your NaNo / NaPo journeys are going well. Much luck to everyone who decided to participate in either or both challenges this month!

    I am trying to do a bit of both — so some writing and some poetry in a rather extraordinarily busy month it has now turned to be for me 0-0

    ... btw Happy April Fools Everyone!

    Thank you YWS staff for keeping us on our toes! Have a good National Poetry Writing Month + Camp NaNo everyone! Those who had their avatars flip flopped by Big Brother, will have them set back today. If you changed your avatar yourself, you can keep it or set it back!
