(preface: I have no clue what to say here asdfghjkl)

hi I'm Saturday, and I guess I'd call myself a poet. most of my writing is experimental, prosey, or otherwise nontraditional. I love to play around with punctuation and capitalization to make statements. this is the first place I've used to actually "show" my writing to someone else :D it's a little intimidating!

although I like writing in any form. I've written plenty of novellas, and sometimes I dabble in roleplaying! basically I can do it all 8)

It is one thing to write as a poet and another to write as a historian.

Welcome @Saturday! YWS has lots of poets so you'll fit right in. :) Do you have any favorite authors?

Some poetry clubs I'd love to recommend:

Poetry Readers hosts monthly poetry discussions ~
Poem A Week offers bi-weekly poetry prompts and challenges users to write a poem as often as they can, whether that's once a week or once a month!
Poetry Jam Club - is a club for poets to join together and have a write-in where everyone's writing poetry at the same time (called a "Poetry Jam" on YWS)

Watch out for April too! We have a great set of National Poetry Month events then. :)
you should know i am a time traveler &
there is no season as achingly temporary as now
but i have promised to return

Hey @Saturday! Welcome to YWS :)

What kind of genres do you write for your novellas?

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...
— Dr. Seuss
