Hi all,

I’m “Nalkarj.” I’ve posted one poem here already, but I thought it would be best to introduce myself. What to say about m’self… I’m currently a copy editor for a political magazine, I’ve always wanted to write fiction—books and short stories, yes, but also plays and screenplays—and in the last few years have started posting poems and song lyrics online. Favorite English-language poets include Shakespeare, W.H. Auden, Emily Dickinson, Phyllis McGinley, Walt Whitman, Robert Frost, Wallace Stevens, Richard Wilbur, A.E. Stallings, and Weldon Kees. I have a preference for formal verse, though I have nothing against free verse. This place looks like a good place for some in-depth critiques and kind people, so happy to be here!

I can attest to that! Copy editing will give you a good base for writing fiction. I wrote non-fiction articles before I ventured into writing my first novel, with help from folks on this site.

Welcome aboard!
