    Do you like to write or read poetry and discuss it online in a bookclub like setting? Then you ,ight enjoy to join Goodreads website which hosts a variety of different genres for ones writing needs: I personally really like the Poetry group. Every month they put on a contest and those in the group vote on the best poem and discuss why. It is also a free way to publish your work and create an author page which can be used to advertise your work and also be put on resumes:

    I don't personally read a lot of poetry, but I do have a few friends who love it and are actually poets themselves. So this would be a good one to pass onto them, because I know they'd LOVE it. So thanks for sharing, @H. C Hartland. The funny thing is, when I sit and watch it being recited, poetry can have the oddest effect in me. If it's particularly emotive, I've found myself in floods of tears and I break out with goose bumps. I mean, it's not as if I'm crazy about it, so I don't get why I get so emotional over it. Very strange.
